Furman University will host its annual Moravian Christmas Lovefeast service Sunday, Dec. 4, at 5 p.m. in Daniel Memorial Chapel.
The event is free and open to the public, and is part of Furman’s Cultural Life Program.
Based on traditions originating in the early Apostolic church, then later in the Moravian church, the Christmas Lovefeast is a meaningful way to celebrate the true spirit of Christmas. The service includes the serving of Moravian buns and coffee, and the lighting of beeswax candles. The sanctuary will be lit by pew candle staffs and decorated with red poinsettias.
Furman will provide special music for the service, and the university’s Chancel Choir, directed by Furman senior Sandy Sharis of Cartersville, Ga., will lead the singing of traditional Christmas carols. Providing accompaniment are seniors Kevin Edens (organ) of Marietta, S.C., and Ann Harouny (flute) of Charlotte, N.C., and Furman junior, Abby Ledogar (flute) of Fort Mill, S.C.
