Bergen is absolutely stunning! (Are you getting tired of reading gushy comments like this?). But truly, after a beautiful sail through a long fjord, we docked beside a long row (called Bryggen) of colorful houses built by Hanseatic merchants around 1702. Castles and arches and towers dot the city; its streets are beautiful; cherry blossoms are in bloom; no one even thinks of littering. The stave church built in 1150 and reconstructed after a fire contains a lepers' squint near the baptistry, a tiny altar and a massive roof.

To me Bergen is quintessential Norway. Its harbor, fishing boat, market, streets, churches. It is my favorite Norway town.

These photos are magnificent. Everything looks so peaceful. What a wonderful opportunity for you both. I am so glad we get to live it through these wonderful photos and your descriptive stories. It looks like your ministry is also doing very well. I love the Sunday prayer gathering bulletins. You are both amazing preachers. Looking forward to hearing one of your sermons at St. John's. We love you both!
