'Epiphany 'Lovefeast' marks full communion

From Delaware-

To celebrate the Moravian Church and the Episcopal Church being in full communion, an "Epiphany Lovefeast" will be held at 6 p.m. Friday at St. George's Chapel, 20274 Beaver Dam Road in Harbeson.

The service is part of the Moravian tradition and is a way to encourage prayer, religious conversation, the singing of hymns and the celebration of important events.

Odes are the primary order of service. In addition, food is often shared, usually in the form of buns and a drink.

The Moravian Church, the world's first Protestant denomination, was founded in Bohemia in 1457 and can be found in North Carolina and Pennsylvania today.
