Canadian cartographer creates map of Moravians around the world

052014moravianmapintroIn 2002 a University student from Good Shepherd Moravian Church in Calgary, Alberta, Canada took on a large project of creating a map showing the influence of the Moravian Church around the world. The finished project hangs in our church and is often the focus of many visitors. It has also been a useful tool for educating our own members about the influence the Moravian church has had and continues to have in the world.


This student, Wesley Jones, is now a professional cartographer and has updated this map to include insets of historical information, significant persons and customs of the Moravian Church. It also includes all the Unity Provinces, Mission Provinces and Mission Areas with their total memberships. The quality of this work can be considered art and is deserving of framing and display, but its greater value is the wealth of educational material it includes.
Good Shepherd Moravian Church is making this map available for purchase. A limited number of maps will be available at the Moravian Synod Northern Province for $15 each. Afterward the price will be $25 each, available by e-mailing admin@goodshepherdmoravian.org

Isaiah 51:17–53:12; Colossians 1:15–27

Who provides for the raven its prey, when its young ones cry to God, and wander about for lack of food? Job 38:41

Paul wrote: The Lord is generous to all who call on him. Romans 10:12

Heavenly Father, you know our hearts and minds, you hear and know our cries, you understand our needs; we patiently wait for the bounty of your generous and glorious hand to be opened before us. In this we pray. Amen.
