    Here are two 20th Century Scandinavian Churches which I particularly like.

    The first is Gruntvig's Kirke in Copenhagen which I had the pleasure of visiting some years ago. While I was there I purchased a recording to the Marcussen organ.

    The second I have not seen but the 1992 Johannes Klais organ is reresented in my collection of recordings.

    Both churches are spectacular in their own way.

    Enjoy

    There are many pretty little churches in Kent and this has inspired me to try and post some pictures of some of them. I'll be back

    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    Well I would rather see pictures of churches here, but it has reminded me that I promised to psot some, so it has served to jog my memory

    I do like the crucifix, so nicely executed (no pun intended)

    Yes it's a Methodist church and it's 84 years old. It was built before the stock market
    crash in 1929.

    It is still a beautiful church. You are forgiven or absolved, as you wish.
