BRIEF: Spokane Baha’is to celebrate birth of Bahá’u’lláh

On Nov. 11 Spokane area Bahá’ís will celebrate the birth of Bahá’u’lláh, the prophet-founder of the faith, with a community potluck.

The celebration will be 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the North Spokane Library, 44 E Hawthorne Road. Guests are asked to bring a hot dish and a dessert or salad to share.

Bahá'u'lláh taught that all of humanity is a single race and that the age has come for its unification in a global society. Like many faith leaders, he was persecuted and tortured by the leaders of his time.

The Birth of Bahá'u'lláh is celebrated from sundown, Nov. 11 to sundown Nov.12 and is one of nine holy days on which work is to be suspended in the Bahá’í faith.
