The Luton Bahá’i Community celebrated their Naw Ruz (New Year) on Saturday March 22 at the Chaul End Centre.
About 80 guests, including Kelvin Hopkins MP, The Right Reverend Richard Atkinson OBE, Bishop of Bedford & his wife, Professor Helen Atkinson, Mr Zafar Khan, Chair of Luton Council of Faiths and representatives of some other faiths attended.
It was a night of celebration with a devotional and musical interlude followed by dinner and socialising.
Bahá’is believe that the foundation of all religions is the same. The reason we have different religion is because God’s message to Mankind is in the form of a progressive and unfolding destiny. Each new Prophet takes religion to the next stage, while bringing social teachings applicable to the time of their manifestation.
The Bahá’i Faith teaches about equality and the concordance of Religion with science while seeing the Earth is but One Country & Mankind its Citizens.
