  • December 1, 2015 Christmas Lovefeast Chapel Service A Peace Christmas Tradition William Peace University invites members of the Peace community and its neighbors to join us for the annual Christmas Lovefeast Chapel Service 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.

Four-Year Baccalaureate University Welcomes Political Science Instructor

RALEIGH, NC, Sept. 20, 2013 – William Peace University, a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, has announced that Elizabeth Kusko, MA, DA, has been named visiting assistant professor for the university’s political science department. In this position, Dr. Kusko will be responsible for preparing and teaching classes within her discipline, specifically on American Politics and Public Administration and Criminal Justice, as well as advising students, conducting scholarship and research in her field, and supporting other activities as needed within her department.

Prior to this position, Kusko served as an affiliate faculty member in the political science department at Idaho State University in Pocatello, where she taught Introduction to American Government and Introduction to Politics. Kusko earned her Doctor of Arts in political science at Idaho State, a Master of Arts in political science from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and a Bachelor of Arts in political science, psychology and international studies at Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania. Her professional affiliations include the American Political Science Association, American Association of University Women and Phi Kappa Phi.

“Those who study political science at William Peace University learn the essentials of how politics, government and the law intersect and make a tremendous impact in our everyday lives,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. “Elizabeth will help our students learn how to effectively review and communicate what is occurring in our political scene both locally and internationally by providing an expert perspective on real-world activities.”

“Growing up, I always knew that I wanted to teach and impart knowledge to others in a professional career, and I am pleased to have that opportunity with William Peace University,” Kusko said. “I want students in my political sciences classes to be excited and exhilarated by the world that surrounds them and to understand the role they can play to shape and influence government and politics in society.”
