Happy New Year

Stjörnuljós is what we call this in Icelandic. It brings young and old joy as we mark the advent of a new year with lights on earth and in the sky.

Happy New Year! May 2017 bring you excitement and joy.

From one year to another

As we pass from one year to another this seemed like an appropriate street to walk.

Retro Christmas

In Aosta, Italy, we happened to pass by a small shop selling lights and chandeliers. They had this set of Christmas lights from the 1960s, 35 bulbs in various colours that now decorate our home. Retro meets modern. Only 27,50 EUR for you my friend

The reformer Marie Dentière

On each side of the Reformation Wall monument in Geneva there are stones bearing the names of Luther and Zwingli, two leaders of the Reformation in Europe. On the block where Zwingli’s name is carved we find another name, that of Marie Dentière. She was one of the women of the Reformation, a theologian who played an active role in religion and politics in Geneva. Dentière preached regularly and advocated for the role of women in religious practice.

Women’s March in Geneva

This morning we marched with the women and men of Geneva to raise awareness and fight for gender justice and equality. A group from our local Lutheran church was there with this nice sign in French.
