On Nov. 27, members of the Baha’i Faith around the world commemorated the centenary of the passing of Abdu’l-Baha, a central figure of the faith.
The Baha’i Faith is a world religion whose teachings and principles center on the oneness of humanity. Abdu’l-Baha was the eldest son of Baha’u’llah, the Prophet-Founder of the Baha’i Faith.
Abdu’l-Baha’s father authorized Abdu’l-Baha as an interpreter of the Baha’i Writings and instructed all to turn to Abdu’l-Baha as a perfect exemplar of the spirit and teachings of the Baha’i Faith. In His life, Abdu’l-Baha demonstrated loving kindness, selfless spirit of service, and generosity, especially towards those in need.
In this spirit, the Baha’is of Plainville are honoring the Centenary of Abdu’l-Baha’s passing by performing acts of service and kindness during the month of December, and they invite all to join in this effort.
Acts of kindness and service may include checking on a neighbor, donating items to the Plainville Food Pantry, assisting a senior citizen, sending a thoughtful card or note, preparing a meal or baking for a person in need, donating toys for Christmas, giving money to a charity, or even just holding the door and greeting someone warmly.
Simple acts can be so impactful.
The Baha’is of Plainville invite you to post on social media about giving or receiving kindness using the hashtags #planvillegives or #plainvilleloves.
