As part of an on going effort to introduce who Baha’i’s are? how do they contribute to the betterment of their society? and how do they put Baha’ullah’s teaching in to practice in their daily lives through community building activities?, the Baha’i’s community of Ajax has planned a series of ongoing monthly public events at the Ajax Main Library (Rotary room).
The event on Saturday Jan 28 from 2-4 PM, is a short one hour documentary that asks viewers to consider a different perspective on religion than the one portrayed in the mainstream media. The film follows an intriguing set of individuals as they help to build peaceful, just and unified communities.
Religion is often portrayed in mainstream discourse as having little relevance to the modern world. It is considered naïve, divisive, even dangerous. At best, it’s something to be kept private.
However, in villages and cities, on farms and in indigenous populations across the globe, a small but growing number of people are putting into practice spiritual teachings that they believe are not only relevant to the future of our world, but absolutely vital if we are to overcome historic divisions of gender, race, religion and politics.
“The Bahá’ís” is produced in association with Vision TV.
The event is open to all and admission is free.
