Baha’is to observe World Religion Day
The Baha’is of Santa Rosa County will observe World Religion Day on Sunday, Jan. 20. World Religion Day was initiated in 1950 by the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of the United States.

It is observed on the third Sunday in January by Baha’is and increasingly by people around the globe to foster understanding and communication between the followers of all religions.

The purpose of World Religion Day is to call attention to the harmony of spiritual principles and the oneness of the world’s religions and to emphasize that religion is the motivating force for world unity. As stated in Baha’i scripture: “religion should be the cause of love and agreement, a bond to unity all mankind for it is a message of peace and goodwill to man from God,” and “Religion is the greatest of all means for the establishment of order in the world and for the peaceful contentment of all that dwell therein.” For more information, visit or call 623-5315.
