A statement from the Baha’i Office on the Environment asserts, “Only a comprehensive vision of a global society, supported by universal values and principles, can inspire individuals to take responsibility for the long-term care and protection of the natural environment. Baha’is find such a world-embracing vision and system of values in the teachings of Baha’u’llah, which herald an era of planetary justice, prosperity, and unity.”
In support of this effort, the Baha’is of Carlisle are hosting an interfaith devotional gathering in praise of the creation at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 3 at 402 Burgner’s Road, Carlisle. Everyone is welcome to attend and bring a reading, prayer, poem or song on this topic to lift our spirits and enhance our praise and worship of the Creator and His matchless creation.
Dee Dombach and her husband, Scott, are members of the Carlisle Bahai Community. They welcome comments at firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit them on at www.bahai.us.
