THE PINEHURST OUTLOOK
is so, too. The spirit of it all is ex
pressed in their litany, to be read at the
dawn service :
' And keep us in everlasting fellowship with
those of our brethren and sisters who, since last
Easter day, have entered into the joy of their
Lord, and with the whole Church triumphant,
and let us rest together in thy presence from our
The whole feeling is that these people have for
their loved guests those of their friends who
now dwell in the quiet country near by.
Then it is that the wonder happens
There is throughout the church an at
mosphere inexplicable but mighty, in
tangible but poignantly real. One may
never have met in the world before the
people sitting beside one, yet there is no
stranger there, for the heart is freed and
knows knows that all there are friends,
fellows, brothers, born in a union might

real and not a thing of tense nerves Or
hysteria is shown by the fact that there
is no break, no jar, only the full and per
fect feeling that what follows is the

that happened to be on the table, of which
He and the twelve had been eating and
drinking but a moment before, to insti
tute His holy communion, so do these peo
ple take the food of their daily table for
this, their feast of love. Not with mys
tically consecrated wafers, not with sac
rimental wine, but with the simplest
things of their common food do they sym
The door of the vestry room opens and
there enter a dozen women in cap and
apron, each carrying a great basket brim
ming over with hot, light rolls,which they
begin to distribute. In their own simple
households they have made the bread;
now, as simply serving, they give it out.
They have no special uniform, but the
aprons and caps are all white, as is meet
for dainty housewives. Sometimes a
young woman will have hers decorated
with bows of ribbon and will have elbow
sleeves, making herself attractive as she
would in her own home for those she
loves. They are just those of the great
family who in loving graciousness wait
upon the others.
When all in the church have been sup
plied the vestry doors again open and the
deacons appear with huge trays laden
with mugs of hot, fragrant coffee, with
the cream and sugar already in it. When
this is passed to all the Bishop is served.
He asks the clergymen who are seated
near him to eat with him at the table be
fore him, but there is no ceremony, no
consecration, not even is the food blessed.
But all partake together in love, these
living children sharing in their hearts
their food with their sisters and brothers
who are no longer bound by the flesh,
and that love is the feast's blessing and
The silence in the church is utter, yet
those who have been to these love feasts
speak in words wondering and hard to
And of the sense of communion, of the
sense of at last speaking that deep thing
which lies in all hearts unutterable.
Sometimes a rare strain of music will
bring in a small degree this feeling, but
at this feast one feels tliat at last the
whole heart has been poured out. And
they say, these gentle Moravians, that
the transcendent thing, this wonder that
fills eyes with tears, that holds the ton
gue speechless, that makes one not dare
lift the eyes, is love, simply love, brother
to brother, child to its father's other chil
dren. - The mystery, the miracle, the
strange attraction that draws thousands
each year is this, that they are moved to
obey for a little while the simplest of all
commandments, "Love one another."
When it is over there is not a morsel
left, for it is known that the Moravians
are hurt by any slight on the feast they
give so freely. Moreover, among the Mo
ravians many believe that if the ill eat of
this bread made holy, not by formula of
words, but by the love of the brethren,
they will be healed, so treasured morsels
of it are carried away. Thus the love
which has been freed in the hearts in that
church is carried out to those who could
not come within its portals, for it is love
that is not held behind walls or in metes
That night the town retires early, for it
knows what is ahead of it. One may sleep
till one o'clock, maybe, but not later, for
not long after midnight, with the very
earliest hours of Easter, every band of
which the town boasts takes to the
streets. Then bursting through the dark
ness, in triumph, in splendor, in the might
of trumpet and horn, comes the hymn :
"Hail, all hail, victorious Lord and Sav
ior!" and thenceforward through the
night the iubilation, the rejoicing, goes on
in all the well known hymns of Easter
tide. Long before dawn a strange procession
begins. Into the streets of the ancient
town, silent and deserted every night in
the year but this, pour the people, hurry
ing, silent shadows in the darkness. One
almost hopes and would not find it un
natural or even startling that if one
would but stop one of these ghostly
shapes one might discern, however, the
features of some friend or kinsman who
has crossed the bounds of the flesh one
of those, maybe, for whom the feast was
given that afternoon, and whose presence
had been felt as surely, as dearly, as ever
strong handclasp had made it felt in life.
Where streets cross throngs meet and
swell till when the avenue leading to the
church is reached a solid mass of quietly
moving people fills it;. That is one of the
wonders of the thing, the silence of the
people these two days. In spite of the
fact that there is nothing awesome to
oppress them, an utter reverence holds
them; though there is no mystery save
love, yet do they worship, and because
that elemental love that should be about
us as the air we breathe is freed for a
while in each locked up breast and wells
up from its secret depths, because for
once heart speaks to heart without the
medium of language, the tongue is numb
ed and refuses utterance.
There is a large space before the little
church where streets meet, and this is
packed, but without pushing or shoving.
These thousands wait in the darkness for
what will happen before the dimly seen
little church that is the centre, the pulse
beat of this transported Moravia.
Then, as the first radiance glows from
under the slowly lifted lids of dawn, as
the breeze with a quick sigh she turns
from her slumber, the door of the church
opens and on the threshold appears the
Bilhop. A figure seen grayly in the lumin-
