“Let Your Vision be World Embracing”
Throughout history, a series of divine Educators have provided the basis for the advancement of civilization. Bahá’u’lláh, the latest of the educators, disclosed that the crucial need facing humanity at this age is to find a unifying vision of the future of society and of the nature and purpose of life.
Striving for this goal, the Bahá’í Community in Aurora is actively engaged in service projects towards fostering the spiritual and moral development of individuals and strengthening the unity of its multicultural community.
Some of our recent activities.
These activities listed below, are geared to various ages from the very young to the youth and the various adults ages. Please click on any of the images below to participate in the activity.
The Bahá’í Writings state, “Among the greatest of all services that can possibly be rendered by man to Almighty God is the education and training of children.” Children’s classes take place in homes throughout Aurora and impart children with such essential spiritual values as truthfulness, courage and knowledge of God.
Youth undergo a period of intense questioning and uncertainty between the ages of 12 and 14. Yet they also possess a vast amount of spiritual energy and insight. Junior youth groups enable these peers to reflect on their most fundamental questions and to use the insight they have gained in service of their families, friends and communities.
Open to all, study circles allow collaborators to discuss the eternal questions of the purpose of life, the nature of the soul and our relationship to God. Underlying the discussions is the understanding that personal spiritual fulfillment is intimately tied to one’s service to the community and society.
At the heart of devotional gatherings is the human impulse to connect with God through the Sacred Word. Held in homes, devotional gatherings allow friends and family to come together and draw inspiration from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh and the other divine Messengers of God.
