Explore Chicago, Baha’i faith on UW-Sheboygan day trip
The UW-Sheboygan Center for Engagement Learning invites area residents to participate in a bus trip to Chicago on Saturday, April 9. UW-Sheboygan Professor Bruce Browne will lead a tour and presentation of the Baha’i faith.
“Baha’i faith is one with which most people could readily agree. The main emphasis is on world peace and equality of religions,” Browne said.
Currently more than 600 million people worldwide are active members of the Baha’i faith and a group currently practices in Sheboygan. Chicago has one of only seven world-wide buildings for the Baha’i faith and is the only one located in North America.
The tour will take place at the Baha’i House of Worship in Wilmette, IL. The domed structure is surrounded by gardens and fountains. After the tour, the bus will head to Michigan Avenue in downtown Chicago for the afternoon. The bus will make stops at the Chicago History Museum, Chicago Art Museum, Water Tower Place, Navy Pier, The Field Museum, The Adler Planetarium & Astronomy Museum, John G. Shedd Aquarium and the Sears Tour with a repeat run.
The tour will take place on Saturday, April 9 with a 7 a.m. departure from the UW-Sheboygan front entrance parking lot under the flag poles. The final departure is at 6 p.m. from downtown Chicago returning to UW-Sheboygan. A $98 fee includes the bus, tip for driver and tour.
