"One Common Faith" is theme of World Religion Day celebration

The Bahá’í community is pleased to invite the public to honor World Religion Day at a special devotional gathering at 10 a.m. on Sunday, January 18 at the Eugene Bahá’í Center, 1458 Alder Street.

Mr. Hooper Dunbar comes to Oregon

Eugene-Springfield area Bahá’ís joined more than 100 other Bahá’ís at Southern Oregon University in Ashland on December 6 for a presentation by Mr. Hooper Dunbar on Developing the Life of the Spirit. Some traveled from as far away as Olympia, Wash., and Chico, Calif. 

Brenda Sawyer, of Cottage Grove, noted some points in Mr. Dunbar’s talk that particularly touched her:

Bahá’ís celebrate anniversary of birth of Bahá’u’lláh

Bahá’ís and their friends from the Eugene-Springfield area gathered at the Valley River Inn on Tuesday, November 11, to celebrate the anniversary of the birth of the founder of their religion, Bahá’u’lláh, with a catered dinner and entertainment. The theme of the evening was “The World Celebrates Bahá’u’lláh!”

Rod Olson, one of the organizers for this year’s event, said, “We are so fortunate to be part of a Faith that is such a loving worldwide community, such a united world family! And so, on the evening of our celebration, Bahá’ís and their friends around the world will all be expressing joy and gratitude for Baha’u’llah’s coming.”

Almost a hundred people attended the event, which began with prayers in six languages: Bangla, Navajo, Spanish, Chinese, English and Farsi. Following the dinners, the program continued with readings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh interspersed with music.

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.
