Here are three shots of the oldest Swedish Lutheran church in Canada, which you’ll find down a side road off a side road that doesn’t go anywhere else.
It hasn’t fallen entirely out of use, which is good, because it’s an attractive thing against the winter backdrop. The congregation was founded in 1889, this church built in 1921.
I thought the stained glass looked promising from outside and was delighted to find the door open.
My family, my Dad’s dad’s branch of it, was Norwegian Lutheran, and the church felt familiar.
