Baha’is Celebrate “Feast of Kalimat”

The Feast of Kalimat is being celebrated by the Baha’i religion Today. KSMU's Katie Easley reports.

This is also known as The Feast of Words. This monthly celebration is similar to the Christian Sabbath day and occurs every 19 days. Baha’i Janet Haworth of Springfield says the local congregation meets in the homes of local Baha’is for this worship service.

“We all meet together as a congregation and whoever is hosting it develops whatever the devotionals will be. It might include music it might include singing it might include stories, it always includes writings of the central figures of the Bahai faith,” says Haworth.

The feast always contains three elements: spiritual devotion, administrative consultation, and social fellowship.
