Welcome to the -10 Celsius world of Ottawa, the capital of Canada. The sky is blue, the sun is shining, and Winterlude is wrapping up soon. Have you been out to see the festivities yet? There are ice and snow sculptures, skating on the Rideau Canal, street performers, and so on. Ottawa is buzzing, but it’ll be over on the 20th – so this is your last chance to see it before it closes!
A few dates to circle on your calendar:
- February 20th – Ottawa’s Cluster Reflection Meeting. This is gonna be a big one because the whole city is going to be embarking on a collective teaching campaign, focused around enlarging our community of interest. We especially need youth and junior youth to be involved with this project – because as we all know, youth are the ones who will change the world! We need you with us during this exciting time. By participating, you will be helping to drive the growth of the Bahá’í community and to transform the way we live. Make your mark!
- February 26th-March 1st – Ayyám-i-Há! Consult Martin’s, Vafa’s, and Arash’s website – not to mention the Ottawa Bahá’í website – for details on Ayyám-i-Há activities.
- March 2nd-March 20th – The Bahá’í Fast. A spiritual time full of blessings, confirmations, prayer and nearness to God. Coming soon: a blog post about the Fast, with sunrise and sunset times and related information.
