Commemorations mark fiftieth anniversary of European
Baha'i House of Worship
LANGENHAIN, Germany — Prominent religious and political figures gathered here at the start of a program of festivities to mark the 50th anniversary of the first Baha'i House of Worship on the European continent.
In the opening reception held at Germany's National Bahá'í Center on 3 July, the Minister of State and head of the Chancellery of the state of Hesse, Mr. Axel Wintermeyer, addressed an audience of some 130 people. In his remarks, he extolled the Bahá'í teachings for promoting "dialogue that is characterized by a respect and tolerance for all religions".
"Many violent conflicts in the world are motivated by religious intolerance," Mr. Wintermeyer said, "and world peace is not possible without religious peace."
"The Baha'i House of Worship, in contrast, is a symbol for religious coexistence and tolerance. Everybody is welcome."
