Fourth Sunday in Advent

Trinity Lone Oak Lutheran Church looked beautiful decorated for Christmas. Pastor Jim Kroonblawd showed me the children's program "Glory to God" artistic decoration hanging on the school gymnasium wall before bringing me up to see the sanctuary. Their church will soon celebrate its 130th anniversary!

  1. Good morning, Leif. The simplicity of the church is most attractive. I imagine that the services there are very well attended.

  2. That's older than I am. Perhaps it could be renamed Lone Pine...you know, for the Xmas season?

    The kids mosaic is very pretty.

  3. I like the look of the sanctuary, clean lines and not too ornate. A beautiful place to contemplate a Power greater than ourselves.

  5. From the exterior, I would have exptected a more ornate and less modern interior. I assume it has been renovated. It is very attractive, inside and out.

  7. Faith - either for ever or for never.
    Guess that arriving in this church it is the former people are gladly choosing.
    Please have a wonderful start into the new week.

  9. Lovely photos, the decorations look welcoming. Many churches have a Christmas tree up these days - a far cry from many years ago.
    I like the mosaic, is that in the church too?
    Cheers.
