 INTRODUCTION

Welcome to UKBahá’í For the bicentenary of the Birth of the Báb, the Universal House of Justice gave us two gis. Firstly, the lm Dawn of the Light, which has been shown in countless settings, om gatherings in homes to screenings in cinemas. e lm demonstrates that every soul has the capacity and possibility to eect a transformation not only in their own lives but in their entire community. e second gi was the letter addressed to “all who have come to honour the Herald of a new Dawn”. As we report in this issue, armed with the lm and the message, iends everywhere set about celebrating the twin Holy Birthdays. Following the bicentenary of the Birth of Bahá’u’lláh in 2017, the House of Justice urged us “to see in each person who responded to your invitation a potential protagonist in the community-building process.” It remains a summons uponwhich victory in the Five Year Plan depends.
