March 1, 2018 — Today is the 561st birthday of the Unitas Fratrum and a great time to recall my own experience raising two sons at Kernersville Moravian Church. For me, it has been a blessing to provide for them a strong foundation of teaching and tradition. For them, being raised Moravian has meant unique experiences. My oldest, Jack, played in the band. My youngest, Will, loved going to Laurel Ridge. They are both in college now. Jack has been accepted at Charleston School of Law. Will is in his first year at Forsyth Technical Community College. I am confident that they are on sure footing to face their futures as Christian men.
It’s a legacy worth preserving. And, it’s a legacy that could only be possible through the collective gifts of many. Some give of their talents, such as nursery care, teaching, music, and administration. Some give financially to provide the unique experience of Laurel Ridge and other Moravian camps. During this season of Lent, I am grateful to all those who sustain Moravian ministry for the next generation. I want to be part of it and I hope you do too.
