When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have established; what are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals that you care for them? Psalm 8:3-4
It was the first Sunday in Advent, the beginning of the church year, and the preacher had begun the familiar preparation sermon. “Prepare the way of the Lord,” the preacher toned from the high pulpit. “All who have ears let them hear.” Directly over the preacher’s head was a traditional Moravian star, nearly six feet across, lit for the first time just minutes before.
“Get along little doggie” isn’t something you hear very often in church. But when the Daggett Moravian Congregation gathered on September 8 for their third annual “Cowboy Church” observance, it’s certain that visions of the Way Out West were on member’s minds.
With attendance three times the normal, folks gathered in their western attire for a western lifestyle worship experience. The community was invited to join with members in a relaxed atmosphere.
In August, a group of young Moravians from the Northern and Southern Provinces joined counterparts from across the Moravian Unity for the 2013 Unity Youth Heritage Tour. The Tour, which traced the roots of the Ancient Unity and renewed Moravian Church in Europe, offered an opportunity to visit the cradle of the Moravian Church.
We asked those who attended to share their perspective and insights into the meaning of this opportunity to them.
Every Monday night we here at the GAPS Community at Downey Moravian Church sit down together to share a meal. As you might imagine, most aspects of our life together in intentional community involve some level of intentionality and purpose. But the lens that provides us with much of our focus and direction is this weekly house meal when we gather to reflect on where we have been, to plot and plan for where we are going, and to freely imagine the new paths that we might forge together.
