Moravian Music Sunday, May 18, 2014

The fifth Sunday of Easter, May 18, 2014, has been designated as Moravian Music Sunday. The purpose of this observance is to help all congregations become more familiar with our rich heritage of Moravian music. Music is an expression of faith, and thus continuing creativity is to be encouraged.


Prayer Day for Star Mountain and Middle East Peace, May 18, 2014

The Provincial Elders’ Conferences of both the Northern and Southern Provinces have designated Sunday, May 18, 2014 as the Prayer Day for Star Mountain and Middle East Peace. The Moravian work at Star Mountain began as a home for lepers in 1867. The work continues today with people with mental and physical disabilities. At the Synod of 2006, both provinces became members of Churches for Middle East Peace (CMEP). The Rev. Dr. Robert Sawyer represents both provinces on CMEP. Star Mountain is located near Ramallah, in an area of great tension in the Middle East. The presence of the Moravian work there bears witness to God’s peace in the midst of violence. Congregations are encouraged to make use of resources found on the provincial website and sent to them via email. Please note: this prayer day is scheduled for this year only.

The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to till it and keep it. Genesis 2:15

Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Matthew 5:5

Creator of the universe, what a privilege you have gifted to us! You have entrusted us to care for the beautiful world that you have created. May we be worthy of that trust. May we tend your garden well. Teach us to be wise stewards and to care gently for the earth and all her creatures. Amen.
