Home Moravian Church, Old Salem, NC

Home Moravian is on the grounds of Old Salem, and was constructed in 1800. The Moravian Church is the oldest Protestant demoniation, founded in 1457.  The Moravian Church is not well know in USA, with about 140 congregations in 17 states (Over 1/3 of which are in North Carolina).   But my mother's family was (and is) Moravian, and my associations with the church were a notable part of my own faith journey.  I especially relate to their motto:  "In essentials, unity; in nonessentials, liberty; and in all things, love".

Meanwhile, The guest house where we stayed last week is directly behind this building.
