05/12/2011

Abdu’l-Baha’s message from 100 years ago rang loud and clear in a BBC  broadcast recently celebrating the 100th anniversary of his visit to Great Britain.

Fidelma Meehan, a member of the National Spiritual Assembly for Bahá’ís in the UK, told Edward Stourton on Radio 4 about the significance of marking the visit’s centenary.

You can hear it on BBC iPlayer at:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b017lbd1/Sunday_27_11_2011/

The section about the Faith is five minutes into the programme.

She said on the programme that Abdu’l-Baha is seen as the perfect example of the Bahá’í teachings in word and action.

Fidelma, a Swindon Bahá’í, said that the Bahá’í religion embraces the idea that all religions are stages of one progressive faith: so celebrating the idea of unity – one faith, one religion.
