Unit Convention elects delegate

On Saturday, October 4, Baha'is from Grants Pass to Eugene gathered at the Campbell Senior Center to pray, sing, share stories from their home communities, consult together on how to help all communities grow and mature and elect a delegate to the National Baha'i Convention. In addition to a lively discussion about the use of social media, those gathered talked about study circles, children's classes, devotional gatherings and an upcoming area youth gathering. 

Eugene Bahá’ís to host annual Unit Convention

Each year in October, Baha’is around the U.S. meet with others in their regions to elect a delegate. That delegate will attend the National Baha’i Convention the following April and elect the nine members of the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of the United States, the governing body for the U.S. Baha’i community. Baha’is in southwest Oregon will have their annual Unit Convention in Eugene on Saturday, October 4, at the Campbell Senior Center.

U.S. Baha’i newsletter features Oregon Baha’i

Each month the National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of the United States publishes an email newsletter, which always includes a feature called Why Bahá’í. These are personal stories of how people have become attracted to the teachings of Baha’u’llah and, eventually, members of the worldwide Bahá’í community. 

Eugene Bahá’í Ted Taylor was the subject of a Why Bahá’í feature in 2007. A more recent edition highlighted a Bahá’í from Portland.
