Virtual Lovefeast

Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, this year streamed its annual Christmas Lovefeast, a Moravian celebration that includes singing, stories and bible readings. Broadcast from the university’s Wait Chapel, viewers were encouraged to participate remotely, preparing their own simple meals or traditional Moravian buns and sweetened coffee. 

“Wherever you are, find a candle or a flashlight, join your voice with ours and gather close for this year’s Wake Forest Lovefeast,” Julie Hatch, wife of Wake Forest President Nathan Hatch, said at the start of the celebration. 

The full 73-minute video is available on YouTube.
