The year is 1969.
The first humans landed on the moon and the mission commander of the Apollo 11, Neil Armstrong supposedly stated:
”That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind”.
I keep wondering if it wasn’t the other way around? In what direction did that leap go? I am not quite sure…
A friend, in a far away land, where space is expensive and reserved for a few and where basic needs and human rights are in short supply, once said: ”Ask anyone what they want to do in the future. They will tell you that they want a house by a lake and the time to enjoy it with family and friends”. I believe she’s closer to the priorities and facts than Armstrong.
Wouldn’t it be great to have a chapel by a river and the time to enjoy it with familiy and friends – just like we do when we gather with Lars Sjöberg every now and then at the church?
The Lutheran Chapel and former EFS Church is a log building in neogothic style from the early 1900s. Lars Sjöberg, owner of the chapel, curator and and author states in his book Classical Swedish Interiors (2007, ISBN 9780393731729).
”My goals have always been to salvage and reveal hidden qualities wherever possible. I feel that if we bulldoze or strip away the past we are depriving the next generation of an essential part of their cultural heritage.”
