1879540-masterBahá’ís in Maidenhead and across the Thames Valley are joining with others around the world to celebrate the 200th anniversary next month of the birth of the Báb, the Herald of the Bahá’í Faith.

In countless settings and places throughout the world, people are marking the bicentenary of the birth of the Báb, Whose revitalizing message prepared the way for the coming of Bahá’u’lláh, the Founder of the Bahá’í Faith.

Bahá’ís in this part of the Thames Valley have arranged a series of evenings – in High Wycombe, Marlow, Burnham and Maidenhead – to show a film specially commissioned for the bicentenary. Titled Dawn of the Light, the 45-minute film follows Bahá’ís from different continents as they relate their own personal journeys of search and their discovery that God has sent two Divine Manifestations in this Day.

These evenings are open to all. For further details, please refer to this invitation (pdf format): 2019-10 Bicentenary of Bab – Invitation – Final

iStock_000000929451SmallWhat are the root causes of poverty and how do we address them? How can we tackle the ways in which income and opportunity are so unevenly spread, within nations and between nations? How do we move towards an economic system that serves the interests of all peoples? And what possible role can religion have in creating such a new model of community life?

The reorganisation of human society to meet the needs of humanity is a recurrent theme in the Bahá’í Writings. There is no detailed Bahá’í economic system as such but instead the fundamentals of a true prosperity, one which is both material and spiritual and which serves all the world’s peoples.

The Maidenhead Bahá’í community warmly invites all those interested in the prosperity of humankind to join an open study group to be held on Sunday 27 January from 2:30pm to 4:30pm (with a midway break for tea and cake).

The group will read and discuss together a letter from the Universal House of Justice, the elected governing council of the worldwide Bahá’í community, on the implications of the Revelation of Bahá’u’lláh for economic life.

All are welcome. No previous knowledge of the Bahá’í Faith is required as an introduction will be provided. For more details, please contact Mike Gammage at bahais.maidenhead@gmail.com.

To mark the centenary of women’s suffrage in the UK, the Bahá’í community of Maidenhead has arranged an evening to explore what Bahá’ís understand to be a vital and universal spiritual truth: the equal status of women and men. We will look at the connections between women’s equality, peace and economic prosperity.

The evening will be enriched by stories of the lives of four extraordinary women who helped to shape the early history of the Bahá’í Faith in the UK – one of them, Honor Kempton (1892-1981), born and raised in Maidenhead.

The event will be held on the evening of 18 April at St Luke’s Community Hall. More details are in the attached flyer (below). All welcome!
