Our Bible, Community and Context students had another trip on Monday – this time to Herrnhut, where the persecuted Moravians of the 18th century settled in what was Count von Zinzendorf’s estate. Dmitry (Ukraine) reflects:
It was a great experience to visit the place which is well known because of the Moravian revival and their prayers, hymns and mission. We visited their white community house for gathering and the archive where we found some of the old documents with Zinzendorf’s own corrections. But it was more than books. Even though we were there for a short time only, we could feel the atmosphere and to talk to the people who are continuing the Christian life of the Moravian community. It was a very good practical lesson for our group.
