Unity Amidst Diversity

Excerpts from a 2014 presentation to the Northern Province Synod of the Moravian Church in America. The Rev. Dr. Craig D. Atwood, Charles D. Couch Professor of Moravian Theology and Ministry at Moravian Theological Seminary, and Director of the Center for Moravian Studies, describes the Essentials, Ministerial, and Incidentals of our faith which have carried us from the Ancient Unity (1457) and are still relevant for us today.

Frank Lewis - An Inspiration

Why the AJC Peachtree Road Race means so much to this Moravian seasoned and senior runner.

In light of the challenges Frank faced he almost didn't run his usual annual road race. His wife died six days before this event but through his grief and pain and in in strong faith, he puts his game together one foot in front of the other and finish the race. He is an inspiration for us all. This video tells the story.
