St John's Westminster: Introduction






On September 17th, 'Abdu'l-Baha at the request of the venerable Archdeacon
of Westminster addressed the congregation of Saint John the Divine after
evening service. With a few warm words characteristic of his whole
attitude Archdeacon Wilberforce introduced the revered Messenger from the
East, who had crossed seas and countries on his Mission of Peace and Unity
for which he had suffered forty years of captivity and persecution. The
Archdeacon had the Bishop's chair placed for his Guest on the Chancel
steps, and standing beside him read the translation of 'Abdu'l-Baha's
address himself. The Congregation was profoundly moved, and following the
Archdeacon's example knelt to receive the blessing of the Servant of
God--who stood with extended arms--his wonderful voice rising and falling in
the silence with the power of his invocation. As the Archdeacon said:
Truly the East and the West have met in this sacred place tonight. The
hymn O God our help in ages past was sung by the entire assembly
standing, as 'Abdu'l-Baha and the Archdeacon passed down the aisle to the
vestry hand in hand.

Outside the Church, Salvationists were holding their meeting and
'Abdu'l-Baha was deeply impressed and touched at the sight of the men,
women and children gathered together in the night, at the street corner,
praying and singing.
