The Day of the Covenant: Children’s Program – courtesy of Baha’i Children’s Class Ideas!

day94_small1Baha’i Children’s Class Ideas! offers a creative children’s program for the Day of the Covenant designed to help children learn about Baha’u’llah’s Covenant.  ‘Abdu’l-Bahá wanted Bahá’ís around the world to learn about Bahá’u’lláh’s Covenant, so He chose a day for us to reflect and learn about it: the Day of the Covenant. On this day, we give thanks and praise to God for the Covenant, and its role in protecting the Cause and ensuring its ultimate victory. We also remember ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s role as Centre of the Covenant, and His lifelong efforts to uphold the Covenant and lay the foundation for the Administrative Order described by His Father.
