“Restoring the Ancient Ecclesia: The Moravians’ 500-Year History of Faithfulness”

Thursday, February 21

4:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.

Chapel on the Hill in the ACU Bible Building

 

Rev. Dr. Jorgen Boytler, Unity Board Administrator of the Worldwide Moravian Church, will speak on the gripping history and ideals concerning the Christian life and the church held by Moravians around the world today.

Known officially as the Unitas Fratrum (unity of the brothers and sisters), the Moravians are one of the oldest “Protestant” churches in existence – predating the Reformation by nearly a century.  The first Protestants to send missionaries internationally, the Moravians emphasized living in simple communities of faith.

This event is sponsored by the Center for Heritage and Renewal in Spirituality (CHARIS) at ACU and is open to the public, with a reception to follow.
