It’s just over 100 years ago – September 1911 – that ‘Abdu’l-Baha arrived in London for a four-week stay as part of his historic Western travels.
At His first ever public talk – given at the City Temple church six days after His arrival in the city – He told the congregation: “The gift of God to this enlightened age is the knowledge of the oneness of mankind and of the fundamental oneness of religion.”
In Reading on 10 September Baha’is gathered with their neighbours to study the words that He had spoken at the City Temple exactly 100 years earlier. One participant, of Nepalese origin, commented on ‘Abdu’l-Baha’s “glorious message of unity.”
