Celebrating the Beginning of a New Spiritual Springtime

Shrine of the Báb in Haifa

On Thursday, May 23, Wollongong Bahá’ís in par with their sister communities around the world will celebrate the beginning of a new spiritual springtime that began with the declaration of the Báb in 1844.

The Báb, meaning Gate in Arabic, announced that He was “the bearer of a Divine Revelation which would prepare humanity for the advent of the Promised One of all religions.” It was a time when many Christians were expecting the return of Christ based on their reading of Biblical prophecy.

In the Islamic world, people were also expecting the appearance of their Promised One.

The celebration, starting at 7:30 on Wednesday 23rd May at Wollongong Bahá’í Centre of Learning, is open to all.
