Spiritual Pursuit Baha’i movie marathon and commemoration of the Ascension of Abdu’l-Baha in Arlington – Nov 27
If you are in town the Saturday after Thanksgiving, I hope you would join me for fellowship and refreshments in preparation for the commemoration of the Ascension of Abdu’l-Baha. Bringing a meal you wish to share, would enrich the menu but coming with empty hands and stomach is perfectly OK too — I will cover the basics, just let me know if planning to come so I can plan accordingly.
To set the mood respectfully yet in communal spirit, we will have two options:
1) Community board game called “Spiritual Pursuit” which would test our knowledge of the Baha’i Faith, its teachings and history.
2) Baha’i movie marathon featuring (in the order the audience chooses):
- “The Promise of All Ages” – a documentary about the life of Baha’u'llah
- “The Noble Thief” – a moving one-man-play about the spiritual transformation of a flawed but sincere man through his growing love of Baha’u'llah
- “Pilgrimage: A Sacred Experience” – a beautiful video meditation on the sacred experience of Baha’i pilgrimage
- “Smith & Dragoman: Live in Concert” – a live recording of the concert performance of the talented Baha’i band Smith & Dragoman from Canada
- “Embrace the World Tour” – a documentary about the U.S. tour of an international group of talented Baha’i musicians bringing about the oneness of humanity through their music
The commemoration with prayers and devotional readings will be at 1 am on Sunday. Please contact me for directions if you plan on coming.
Have a happy Thanksgiving!
