Feast of Dominion – Readings and Brief Talk
The Baha’i calendar, with 19 months and 19 days (plus 4-5 intercalary days), is punctuated by a Feast at the beginning of every month – more spiritual than physical. The Feast is composed of three parts – devotions, consultation, and fellowship. The month of “Dominion” (Mulk) begins on the 7th of February, but the Baha’is of Grand Prairie are holding our Feast on Friday the 8th.
The devotions will explore the relationships of God, humanity, and nature, including the creation care implied by the term “dominion” in the book of Genesis. Devotions and consultation will be bridged by a brief presentation of the formal position of the international Baha’i community, which is that climate change is occurring and “it is critical that the world act in a unified way to prevent future climate change and to help humanity to adapt to the changes already set in motion.” [http://goo.gl/MSWVC]
During the consultation, the community will be asked to consider sending the “Love Creation” postcards to the President. As well, we will broach the topic of next steps for our community.
