Baha’i faith members in Wilson County will celebrate the 200-year anniversary of the birth of Baha’u’llah, the prophet founder of the Baha’i faith, with acts of service and a celebration gathering. 

Celebrations are planned worldwide in September and October. The Wilson County Baha’is will perform several acts of service and play host to other events leading up to a gathering Oct. 22 at the Mt. Juliet Community Center at Charlie Daniels Park. Celebrations will also be held the same weekend in Nashville, Murfreesboro, Hendersonville and Williamson County. All celebrations will be free and open to the public. Baha’i faith members have lived in Wilson County for the past 45 years. 

Baha’u’llah, translated as the “glory of God,” was born Nov. 12, 1817 in Persia. He taught there is one God, one eternal religion and one human family and that all of God’s children will eventually live together in peace and unity with no one group exalted above any other.
