On Monday, March 21, a group of Baha’is and their like-minded guests gathered at the Dove Creek Community Centre to celebrate Naw-Ruz. The new year celebration marks the beginning of 168 BE which represents the one hundred and sixty-eight years of Baha’i era. The evening was filled with good food, instrumental music, songs and up-beat conversation.
Here’s a chorus from one of the many songs from that evening.
“Unity brings peace, unity brings harmony, unity is powerful, it creates unity from diversity.”
We were surrounded by a fellowship of ages, personalities and cultures. The positive power of the gathering brought about by smiles and delightful chatter contributed greatly to the atmosphere of spirituality. We made attempts to harmonize our singing and encouraged participation from the group. It was a peaceful evening.
We hope you can join us next year.
