Foster Farm Children's Class celebrates Bicentenary Birth of Baha'u'llah

Foster Farm Children's Class celebrates Bicentenary Birth of Baha'u'llahOn Saturday, 28 October 2017, almost 40 students, parents, friends and teachers from the Foster Farm Children’s Class, came together to celebrate the bicentenary of the birth of Bahá’u’lláh.

The children had been preparing for this celebration for a number of weeks.  One week, the children prepared invitations for parents and friends to attend the celebration.  Another week, they worked on crowns, inscribing them with Bahá’u’lláh’s message:  “Attire mine head with the crown of justice, and my temple with the ornament of equity.”  There was a decorative paper chain created with the attributes:  justice, unity, love and peace to name a few written on each link.  Over the course of several weeks, work was also undertaken to prepare a large-scale mosaic art piece to mark the 200th anniversary of the Birth of Baha'u'llah. The children worked hard on creating this art piece which used large letters to state “Happy Birthday Bahá’u’lláh".

This celebration was one of over 80 celebrations held across the City of Ottawa during the October/November time period to celebrate the Bicentenary Birth of Baha'u'llah.

The Foster Farm children's class is held weekly, with the objective to inspire in each child a love for our diverse human family as well as to cultivate a praiseworthy character, developing spiritual qualities such as truthfulness, generosity and kindness. Based on the teachings of Baha'u'llah, these classes seek to inspire in the children a love of God and His Prophets, with the intention of assisting the children ultimately to contribute to the well-being of their neighbourhoods.
