Sacred Moments: The Divine Springtime

springDevotional Gathering At Wollongong Bahá’í Centre of Learning

Sunday 1st May – 11:00 am

Corner of Princess Highway and Bellambi Lane, Russell Vale

According to ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, the season in which a Manifestation of God appears is the divine springtime. He explains: “When Christ appeared in this world, it was like the vernal bounty; the outpouring descended; the effulgences of the Merciful encircled all things; the human world found new life. Even the physical world partook of it. The divine perfections were upraised; souls were trained in the school of heaven so that all grades of human existence received life and light.” Similarly, in this age, “Bahá’u’lláh has come into this world. He has renewed that springtime. The same fragrances are wafting; the same heat of the Sun is giving life; the same cloud is pouring its rain, and with our own eyes we see that the world of existence is advancing and progressing. The human world has found new life.” (‘Abdu’l-Bahá, The Promulgation of Universal Peace)

The  Sacred Moments on 1st of May will provide an opportunity to reflect on the divine springtime. 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.
