Devotional Gathering At Wollongong Bahá’í Centre of Learning

Sunday 3rd of April – 11:00 am

Corner of Princess Highway and Bellambi Lane, Russell Vale

The human reality is endowed with innate excellence, and the potentialities inherent in human station are great. ‘Abdu’l-Bahá explains: “The station of man is great, very great. God has created man after His own image and likeness. He has endowed him with a mighty power which is capable of discovering the mysteries of phenomena. Through its use man is able to arrive at ideal conclusions instead of being restricted to the mere plane of sense impressions. As he possesses sense endowment in common with the animals, it is evident that he is distinguished above them by his conscious power of penetrating abstract realities. He acquires divine wisdom; he searches out the mysteries of creation; he witnesses the radiance of omnipotence; he attains the second birth—that is to say, he is born out of the material world just as he is born of the mother; he attains to everlasting life; he draws nearer to God; his heart is replete with the love of God. This is the foundation of the world of humanity; this is the image and likeness of God; this is the reality of man; otherwise, he is an animal.

The focus of the Sacred Moments on 3rd of April will be on human station. You are warmly invited to attend and experience new dimensions of sacredness. In Sacred Moments, Bahá’ís, and their friends and families unite with one another in prayer. There are no rituals; no one individual has any special role.

Every meeting consists largely of reading prayers and passages from Bahá’í sacred texts, and often uplifting music, in an informal yet respectful atmosphere. A spirit of communal worship is generated by these simple gatherings, and this spirit permeates the community’s collective endeavours.
