Posts Tagged ‘Universal Peace’

The Bahá’í Writings describe universal peace as ‘the supreme goal of all mankind’. And yet the world is in turmoil and the heart of every conscientious person burns with anguish. We long to create a better world for our children and grandchildren. A peaceful world, in which the ingenuity and resources devoted to armaments and conflict can be diverted instead to education, health and wellbeing.

Bahá’ís believe that the teachings of Bahá’u’lláh provide the framework for building that new world, based on the truth that we are one interconnected human family sharing one precious homeland.

The Bahá’í Community of Maidenhead will host its first ever ‘public meeting’ on Zoom on 14 October: an event to mark the 2020 Week of Prayer for World Peace (11-18 October) and the 75th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations.

Bahá’í International Community Statement

Its founders intended that the United Nations should be the institution to end war. Its primary purpose was, and remains, to maintain world peace and security.

Our presentation will draw upon a recent statement from the Bahá’í International Community to mark the UN’s 75th anniversary. Entitled ‘A Governance Befitting’, it sets out a Bahá’í perspective on humanity’s path towards a just world order and universal peace.

Alas, no cakes, no refreshments, no chatting afterwards – but we hope that you might still want to join us online.

For more details on the event, please download the flyer:
