Upcoming Events
  • December 1, 2014 WPU Community Lovefeast A Peace Christmas Tradition William Peace University invites members of the Peace community and our neighbors to join us for the annual WPU Community Lovefeast in Dinwiddie Chapel (Main Building, 2nd Floor). Rev. Dr. R. Lee Carter, our William C. Bennett Chaplain and Assistant Professor of Religion, welcomes members of the community to receive Communion during this festive event. A Lovefeast service is a service dedicated to Christian love and is most famously practiced by the Moravians. A Lovefeast seeks to strengthen the bonds and the spirit of harmony, goodwill, and congeniality, as well as to forgive past disputes and instead love one another. The Moravian Lovefeast is based on the Agape feast and the meals of the early churches described in the Bible in the Acts of the Apostles, which were partaken in unity and love. Traditionally for European, Canadian, and American Lovefeasts, a sweetened bun and coffee (sweetened milky tea in Germany, Holland and England) is served to the congregation in the pews by dieners (from the German for servers); before partaking, a simple table grace is said. The foods and drinks consumed from congregation may vary tremendously at the Lovefeast and are usually adapted from what the congregations have available. Services in some Colonial-era Lovefeasts, for example, used plain bread and water; some in Salem were known to have served beer. The Moravian Lovefeast also concentrates on the singing of hymns and listening to music which may come from the organ or choir. The songs and hymns chosen usually describe love and harmony. The congregation can talk quietly with their fellow brothers and sisters in Christ about their spiritual walk with God. The William Peace University Community Lovefeast will feature special student, faculty and staff speakers and dieners. Event Date: Monday, Dec. 1, 2014 Event Time: 6:00 p.m. Event Location: Dinwiddie Chapel, 2nd Floor of Main Building Admission: FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC   view Event
