HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. -- To mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of Bahá’u’lláh, who established the Bahá’í Faith in Iran in the 19th century, the local Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís planted a tree at Huntersville Athletic Park in late October as an act of service to the community. Members of the Huntersville Bahá’í community and their guests attended a celebration that included readings, prayers, songs and a talk about the life of Bahá’u’lláh. A memorial plaque will also be placed at the tree. The tree-planting was part of the Light of Unity Festival, an extended celebration of the impact Bahá’u’lláh’s teachings have had around the world. Work done in the spirit of service to humanity is the Bahá’í highest form of worship and a basic concept of Bahá’u’lláh’s teachings that the world can be unified in justice, peace and prosperity.
