Second life

One of the things we love about the city we live in are the second hand furniture shops. They get donations from the people of Geneva every day. Beautiful furniture that can have a second or third life. Our two favorite shops are run by the Catholics and the Protestants. This chandelier was bought in one of them and now adorns our living room.

Ps. this is also photo 316 of 365 this year.

Imagine the discussions

I had a chance to visit the city of Wittenberg, Germany, this week. The purpose was to meet with theologians from churches all over the world who are attending an LWF course on Luther’s theology. On my way from the train station I walked past the beautiful Lutherhaus, where Martin Luther and Katharina von Bora lived with their children.

Imagine the discussions that took place there in the 16th century, about church and theology, politics, society.
