Bahai's of Bethesda is hosting a virtual Divine Springtime Devotional-Spiritual Unity Feast program on Sunday, April 30, 2023 from 4:00pm - 5:45pm. 
The theme of the program:

 Renewal of Faith and Love for God’s Creation of Nature: Community Restoration of Native Trees and Forests of the Chesapeake Watershed”

The Divine Springtime Devotional-Spiritual Unity Feast program celebrates our common spiritual, moral and civic responsibility to Care for God’s Creation of Nature. The universal and ancient symbols of native trees, forests and water are historically celebrated as the foundation for all human/animal/plant life and sustainable natural environment. For the Chesapeake Bay watershed communities, states, region - and all nations in the world - conservation and restoration of native trees and forests are now required for sustainable environment. For all forms of life, clean drinking water, clean air, natural habitat conservation, biodiversity and climate change resilience depend on native species of trees and forests. In the Divine Springtime program, our individual and community responsibility to protect native trees and forests is affirmed through spiritual renewal, faith and Care for God's Creation of Nature.
