Jamaica’s Baha’i Community To Discuss Restorative Justice

Are you familiar with the Baha’i community in Jamaica? If not, this might be an opportunity to get to know them. This should be an interesting discussion. We certainly need more peaceful ways of resolving our disputes.

The Baha’i Community of Jamaica will celebrate National Baha’i Day on July 25, 2017. This special day proclaimed by former Governor General of Jamaica, The Most Hon. Sir Howard Cooke, acknowledges that all religions proceed from one God, that the peoples of the world are one and that world peace and justice are critical to the solution of the world’s problems.

This year also importantly marks the global bicentennial celebrations of the birth of Baha’u’llah, the founder of the Baha’i faith. The Baha’i faith remains the second most geographically widespread faith in the world.

In Kingston the day will be marked with a Public Forum on Restorative Justice, starting at 6 :30 at the National Baha’i Centre, 208 Mountain View Avenue.  All are invited to attend.
