Over the next year, each Twelve Moments will highlight the role of music and sound in spiritual practices, and how these practices sustain us in the face of current challenges and injustices. For the month of February, the Rothko Chapel presents a meditation in the Bahá'í tradition, led by representatives of the Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá'ís of Houston, including Marcel Wormsley.

About the Twelve Moments series
Since 2005, the Rothko Chapel has shared a monthly contemplative practice featuring different spiritual and faith traditions. Taking place on the first Wednesday of each month from 12-1pm, this series engages teachers and religious leaders from the greater Houston community, providing opportunities to learn more about specific traditions and participate in a contemplative practice.

About the presenters
The Bahá'í Faith has been part of the Houston community since the 1930s. The first Local Spiritual Assembly in Houston was established on April 21, 1942, and local members were involved in legal and social civil rights movement efforts from the 40s through the 60s. Since the early 2000's, the Houston Baha'i Center has made its home in its present location, 2419 Fannin St in midtown Houston. Currently, the Houston Bahá’ís are hard at work on various community building efforts throughout this great city, including the teaching of children's classes, animating of junior youth groups, and the facilitation of study circles, all punctuated by regular devotional gatherings throughout the city, firesides in homes and at the Houston Baha'i Center, and regular home visits among the friends.
