Palm Sunday in Førre

How about a picture heavy post for Palm Sunday? We went to the old chapel overlooking the fjord today, here are some shots I took there so you all could see how lovely the sanctuary was...

From our seats, before the service began...






















Details on some of the pews, from the aisle...













The pulpit, obviously...















The organ loft, complete with organist and some other dude...










Angel detail near entry...














The altar piece, isn't it beautiful?the top of the frame says "the answer to our trespasses" in Norwegian...











To the left side of the altar piece...












Even the hymnal racks were lovely!









There were four baptisms during today's service too! All the babies on their long white gowns and their families in their traditional bunads for the occasion! The little children in the families were the most precious, and got to wipe off their baptized sibling's heads fo the pastor after he was finished. I would have taken photos but, didn't want to offend anyone!

Have a blessed Palm Sunday, everyone. On Maundy Thursday we're going to the service in the chapel we usually attend, the one I mentioned was really modern looking... I'll post more photos then!
