What a glorious day!

little ferry - big fjord

And the flowers really are starting to blossom. I took some pictures today, not all of them so great or sharp; but then I played a little…..

The sun is shining from blue sky, warm and welcome after a winter of too much rain and snow!

Easter Day

When you work as a pastor you can’t help letting the days in the Church year effects you; or at least I can not! I live with the shifting days and especially at Easter time there is a lot of drama going on. From the saddest sad to the highest joy. So today I smile :D, and am happy to wish everyone I meet a Happy Easter – where as on Good Friday I smiled :), but thought it was to soon for a Happy wish……

We had a nearly full church today and two little ones got baptized. It was a service full of joy, as it’s message is:

The angel said to the women, β€œDo not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: β€˜He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”

So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples.

Later tonight we shall have a new service much like this one, just in an other church. So now I’m going to drive my car down to the ferryline and hope that I am alowed to just place him down there and drive on board in the ferry later. This is one of the days with biggest traffic over the fjord. Everyone are going home after holiday either today or tomorrow. And I don’t want to stand in que for an hour or two (as it usually takes later today…) If I’m not alowed this, I’ll just have to take the car over now and use an hour to do it!!! (I so hope not, but I take with me a book just in case!)

Happy Easter!

Tonight we gathered together to celebrate Easter night. It is starting to be more common with services around midnigth before Easter day in Norway; we’ve done it the last three years. We go from Good Friday to Easter Sunday in the service. In the beginning there are just a small amount of light, in the midle we turn on all the light and sing: “Glory be to the Lord..”

To be honest, we should have been in the church until the morning, like they did it in the “old days” – and some places even today. But we said Happy Easter and split. We’ll meet again later today for a service a 12 am.

I leave you with some pictures of the night:
