Dialog: A Unifying Vision; NEW SCHEDULE Sunday Sept. 10 (and every Sunday), 12:30 pm;  Bahá’í Center, 8720 N Ivanhoe St, Portland, OR 97203.
This generation, unlike any in the past, has the opportunity to solve issues such as racism, sexism, the disparity between the extremely wealthy and the extremely poor, and intolerance of religious differences, on a local and global scale. We have the tools to move away from violent acts of hatred toward justice and unity.
Throughout history God has sent a series of messengers to humanity, divine educators known as Manifestations of God, to provide guidance for advancing civilization. The crucial need facing humanity today is to find a unifying vision of the future of our global society and our own spiritual reality and purpose. God has not left us alone. Another Divine Educator has come with a vision for the unfoldment of a world civilization and a renewed understanding of our spirituality and purpose.  Come and investigate the truths in the writings of Bahá’u’llah for yourself in weekly conversations on these topics.  No collection is taken, dress is informal.  For more information, please call Leonard at 503 863-0827.
