A beloved Moravian tradition

What could be better than one Lovefeast service? How about two?

The 52nd annual Lovefeast at Wake Forest added an early service for families before the traditional evening service, livestreamed to alumni, parents and students studying abroad on Dec. 4.

In this season babies and children "call us out of our own self-interest," University Chaplain Tim Auman told the congregation. "Our children invite us and bring us into relationship -- relationships that are based on love and compassion and mercy." He added, "We have within us, I believe, a deep capacity to love. Perhaps that's the reason that we're all here -- not just (for) our own children and not just our families and our own friends -- but a world groaning for hope and for healing."

We offer this link to send you greetings of the sacred season. You will find video of the evening service and photos of the congregation's lifting the flickering beeswax candles heavenward. May your holidays be blessed and bright.

With all good wishes,

Maria Henson
