The Moravian Advent Star

The Moravian star (also known as the Advent Star) is a beautiful geometric design, most commonly having 26-points. It is an emblem for the Moravian Church worldwide. Most often, the star is used for Advent and Christmas decorations and is popular in Old Salem (Winston-Salem, NC), throughout Moravian settlements and in Germany & Europe where there are Moravian congregations.

The geometric design is a natural choice for engraving in to natural surfaces like wood or stone. We have options to outline the geometry of the star, or an inlay look that stands out from the material.

The Table Blessing

Gathering together before a meal and sharing words of grace and thanksgiving is not a practice unique to Moravians, yet the words of the table blessing are certainly a cherished tradition of the church. First published in the year 1753 in a Moravian hymnal, Etwas vom Liede Mosis, des Knechts Gottes, und dem Liede des Lammes, das ist: Alt- und neuer BrĂ¼der-Gesang. The title was Tisch-Gebetgen, or Table Prayer. There are possibilities that the prayer is from an older text with Lutheran origins.
