Baha'i Temple with the Urban Sketchers of Chicago

I met with the Urban Sketchers Chicago gang today at this wonderful architectural building. The Baha'i House of Worship is open to the public and invites anyone of any religion to worship God, Baha'i belief in the fundamental oneness of religion. The columns are engraved with the symbols of religions. The crescent moon with the five-pointed star of Islam, the cross of Christianity, the six-pointed star of Judaism and the hooked cross (and variations) of Hinduism, Buddhism, and American Indian Religions. I have to thank to whoever chose this location as our meeting place this month, not only because this temple and its gardens are peaceful and beautiful but because I never thought a concept like this would exist. Fascinating.
