Why August 13th is special to the Nain Moravian Church

The Moravian Church in Nain will be having their August 13 celebration this coming Sunday

That day is a very significant date within the Moravian church.

On this day in 1727, the congregation of the church in Berthelsdorf, Germany wasn’t getting along.

There was a division amongst the people in Hernnhut, Germany. Fighting and quarrelling was taking place amongst the church leaders and the people.

But on August 13, 1727, during a Holy Communion service.

The residents of Hernnhut were reunited into the Renewed Brethren’s Church through the Spirit of God.

The congregation members ended up crying amongst themselves, hugging and forgiving each other.

So in recognition of this, the Moravian Church in Nain will be holding special services this Sunday.

At 10:00 AM there will be a special Inuktitut service, 5:00 PM will be the Inuktitut Liturgy for this date and Holy Communion takes place at 7:00 PM.
