Faith on tap TONIGHT May 14: Edmond Baha'i Center

by Carla Hinton Published: May 14, 2013

EDMOND — “Five Years Too Many” is the theme of a special devotional program set for 7 tonight at the Edmond Baha’i Center, 321 Campbell Drive.

The gathering commemorates the fifth anniversary of the imprisonment of seven Baha’i leaders in Iran.

The program will focus on offering prayers for the well-being and release of all Baha’i prisoners in Iran who have been detained for years on false charges stemming from their belief in the Baha’i Faith.

Organizers said “Five Years Too Many” is the name of a global campaign that refers to the number of years the Baha’i leaders have been imprisoned on baseless charges and without a proper trial.

The service is open to the public. The center is just west of the University of Central Oklahoma clock tower.
