About the Wake Forest Lovefeast tradition

The world’s religious and philosophical perspectives, among their magnificent diversity, also all articulate a variety of shared values. These are noble virtues such as mercy, compassion, and love, as well as more tangible virtues such as service, community, and philanthropy. These deeply held, widely shared Wake Forest beliefs provide the platform for our Annual Christmas Lovefeast. We continue to frame this uniquely Christian event around these shared values so that the spirit of hospitality becomes a medium for creating bridges across the chasms of our religious differences. Though a Christian service of worship, all are welcome to participate.
