Moravian Music Festival: Lovefeast & Song Service celebrates full communion

When In Our Music God Is Glorified
A Lovefeast and Song Service Of Christian Unity

Celebrating the Full Communion Partnership Between the Episcopal, Evangelical Lutheran, and Moravian Churches of America

7:30 p.m. • Sunday, July 14, 2013
(brass prelude will begin at 7:00 p.m.)

Central Moravian Church, Main & Church Streets • Bethlehem, Pennsylvania

To herald the start of the 24th Moravian Music Festival, join us for a lovefeast and song service celebrating our unity in Christ and the musical traditions of the Episcopal, Evangelical Lutheran, and Moravian Churches in America.

An ecumenical choir and clergy will lead this unique service of song, with favorite hymns from each of our faith traditions. This special service is the first to be celebrated by all three full communion partners.

The lovefeast, a Moravian tradition that dates back nearly 300 years, is a simple fellowship meal (typically coffee and a bun) shared within a song service to celebrate special occasions. 

Join us for this historic evening of beautiful music and Christian unity. This event is free and open to the public.

I will bring them through the fire, will refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, and I will answer them. Zechariah 13:9 (NKJV)

Paul wrote: We also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope. Romans 5:3–4

God, sometimes life feels too difficult to bear and we cannot feel you with us. Help us to be more aware of your presence even in the most challenging situations, and strengthen us to face the day. Amen.
