Guest speaker and Baha’i Teacher, Adam Sippola, will discuss prophecy fulfillment and it’s relationship to the Baha’i Faith, as the Baha’i Faith is a faith based upon proof – scientific, scriptural, historical and spiritual.
Mr. Sippola will present examples of specific prophecy fulfillment, such as the prophesied name, date, address & mission of the Promised Ones spoken of in the scriptures, as well as abstract fulfillment of vision and prophecy, as with the ancient Hebrew Kabbalah, the Tree of Life.
This presentation is being hosted by Students Seeking Spirituality, a student organization at the University of Minnesota, Duluth.
We will gather together at 5pm for a potluck Feast in celebration of the 1st day of Ridvan! This day marks the 150th anniversary of the Proclamation of Baha’u’llah, as well as the 50th year JUBLIEE anniversary of the commencement of the mission of the Establisher of the Baha’i Faith.
“Ridvan” (pronounced Rizwan) means paradise, and is named for the Garden of Ridvan, where Baha’u’llah stayed for 12 days prior to his exile from Baghdad to Constantinople in 1863, and where He first proclaimed His mission as the Promised One of all previous Revelations.
The Festival of Ridvan is celebrated from April 21st – May 2nd, with the 1st, 9th, and 12th days celebrated as Holy Days.
This feast will include a spiritual portion, consisting of prayer, writings,and a short presentation, followed by a physical portion, consisting of a potluck dinner and fellowship. All are warmly welcome.
Following the feast, there will be a musical concert in the sanctuary at 7pm. The concert, titled “ECSTATIC“, will feature musicians Adam Sippola, Kristy Marie Nur Jehan Chisti, Ian Kimmer, and Bryce Kastning, as they share devotional and ecstatic music in celebration of God and in anticipation of the promise from all religions of Peace on earth with Justice for all people.
