For 237 years...

Here comes the Sun!
Old Salem building
Home Moravian Church, founded 1771
For 237 years Old Salem has held an Easter Sunrise Service - And every Easter since we moved to here we've attended. The service begins in the dark at Home Moravian Church next to Salem College in Old Salem village and after a procession up and over the hill, the service continues and ends on God's acre, the Moravian cemetery. Of course, being Catholic I would rather attend Mass but since I love the feeling of an outdoor sunrise service on Easter and since the Catholic church here doesn't offer one, we've made the Old Salem Moravian service part of our Easter celebration. We've had a nice breakfast so it's back to bed to listen to the birds chirp!
