“The diversity in the human family should be the cause of love and harmony, as it is in music where many different notes blend together in the making of a perfect chord.” ‘Abdu’l-Bahá

Across the Lehigh Valley Bahá’ís and their friends, neighbors and co-workers are joining together to participate in numerous diverse activities that bring people together in a spirit of fellowship, learning and service. Some of these activities are described below.
INFORMAL INTRODUCTORY GATHERINGS, sometimes referred to as firesides, provide a comfortable, informal setting for learning about the Bahá’í Faith and developing bonds of friendship. Interesting conversation and a warm cup of tea or coffee are assured!
DEVOTIONAL GATHERINGS aim to create a new spiritual atmosphere in homes and neighborhoods, through prayer and reflection. Bahá’ís delight in sharing with people of all faiths the joy of praising and remembering God in a spirit of unity and fellowship. Participants are invited to share prayers, sacred readings, poetry and music in an informal, uplifting atmosphere.
STUDY CIRCLES gather people of varied backgrounds to consider teachings from the Bahá’í Writings on the purpose of life, the nature of reality and the significance of service. Participants seek to put the learning acquired into practice in an effort to explore the application of spiritual teachings to their individual and collective lives. Study circles meet in homes and at the bi-weekly Bahá’í Sunday School.
The first book in a series of books specifically developed for study circles, Reflections on the Life of the Spirit, focuses on universal spiritual values, the power of prayer, and the spiritual life we live after departing from this world.
JUNIOR YOUTH GROUPS channel the surging energies of junior youth toward a twofold moral purpose: to take charge of their own personal growth and to contribute to the transformation of society.
BAHÁ’Í SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES provide spiritual education for children and youth, and an engaging book study group for adults.
BAHÁ’Í HOLY DAYS are regularly observed by the Bahá’ís of the Lehigh Valley in concert with other Bahá’í communities around the world.
