There we were, my wife Christa and I, and about 25-30 more people in this, one of the Lutheran churches that #Denmark is rich. Good to see the congregation of Jesus coming together in a village. Singing together, confess the faith, pray and hear God's Word. It was about facing the future fearlessly and without worry, for God our Heavenly Father cares. Beautiful! Then it was the celebration of the Lord's Supper; kneeling as a congregation, receiving bread and wine. Precious in vacation time! Afterwards we talked with the pastor about being church in Denmark and the Netherlands. What a gentle and kind man... We wish this congregation the nearness of our God! And all those who are interested, feel free to enter this House of God to experience His peace, to pray or to experience a church service like us.

Odeon of Herodes Atticus

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus is a stone theatre structure located on the southwest slope of the Acropolis of Athens. It was built in 161 AD by the Athenian magnate Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife, Aspasia Annia Regilla. It was originally a steep-sloped theater with a three-story stone front wall and a wooden roof made of expensive cedar of Lebanon timber. It was used as a venue for music concerts with a capacity of 5,000. It lasted intact until it was destroyed and left in ruins by the Heruli in 267 AD.

The audience stands and the orchestra (stage) were restored using Pentelic marble in the 1950s. Since then it has been the main venue of the Athens Festival, which runs from May through October each year, featuring a variety of acclaimed Greek as well as International performances.
