Chaplain’s Office presents Moravian Love Feast Dec. 3


Furman University will host its annual Moravian Christmas Love Feast service Sunday, Dec. 3 at 5 p.m. in Daniel Memorial Chapel on campus.

The event is free and open to the public, and is presented by Furman’s Office of the Chaplains.

Based on traditions originating in the early Apostolic church, then later in the Moravian church, the Christmas Love Feast is a meaningful way to celebrate the coming of the Christ child.

Illuminated by candlelight and decorated with red poinsettias, Daniel Chapel is the setting for the Love Feast service.

The service includes the serving of Moravian buns and coffee, and the lighting of beeswax candles. The sanctuary will be illuminated by pew candle staffs and decorated with red poinsettias.

Gail Schoonmaker, coordinator of music for the chapel, has invited musicians from the Furman community to participate in the service including Elliott Cihlar, violinist; Savannah York, violist; and Jamisen Collier, organist. These musicians will accompany Furman’s acclaimed Chancel Choir in songs of the season.
