The early Christians met and broke
bread together to signify their union,
fellowship and love. In 1727, the
Moravian Church revived this practice,
and it has established the custom of
celebrating the great church festivals by
partaking together of a simple meal
knovm as a “lov^east.” The first, love-
feasts of the Moravian Church in North
America were held in Savannah, Georgia
during the yeara 1735 to 1740. The first
lovefeast in this area was heid on the
evening of the arrival of the first Moravian,
colonists in North Carolina, November
17,1753, at Bethabara Settlement, near
The Christmas Lovefeast, with its
lighted candles is one of the most beau
tiful sen/ices of the Moravian Church.
TTie custom originated on the European
contirwnt at Marientx>m In the year 1747,
and spread throughout the Moravian
world. The first Christmas lovefeast held
at Bethabara was in 1753 and at Salem I n
1771. in North Carolina, the candles were
used for the first time in the children's
lovefeast of Bethabare and Bethania in
1762. Every person is given a lighted
candle to remind him that Christ said, “I
am the light of the world,” and “you are
the light of the workj - let your iight So
shine before men, that they may see your
good works, and glorify your Father who
is in heaven.”

“Why is it 9(5 cold in CCL?’
Many of you have asked this
question repeatedly as you shivered
and felt as if your toes, fingers, and
nose have t>een encased in ioe. The
answer is not a simple one, but you
need to be aware of the circum

The Ideal temperature and rela
tive humidity for books and other
materials is NOT the ideal tempera

we must try to reach a compromise
in which our wamvblooded patrons

without ^ther suffering too greatly.
Attention has been given to this
prc^em In the past, and you may
rest assured that it is continuing to
be examined this year. The main
tenance department is co-operating
with the library staff and is moni
toring daily the temperature on all
