My worship and my witness.
I started photographing churches as "The House of God" as part of my Year 2000 Project and have continued ever since. This blog is a tribute to the congregations who built these churches and that keep open the doors of these places of Christian renewal and service. Thanks be to God.

"Grytviken is a popular stop forcruise shipsvisitingAntarctica, and tourists usually land to visit Shackleton's grave. TheSouth Georgia Museumis housed in the manager's house of the former whaling station, and is open during the summer tourist season.
"The station's church is the only building which retains its original purpose, and is still used occasionally for services. There have been several marriages in Grytviken, the first being registered on 24 February 1932, between A.G.N. Jones and Vera Riches, and the most recent on 19 February 2006, between Peter W. Damisch and Lesley J. Friedsam. On 28 January 2007, a service was conducted in remembrance of Anders Hansen (a Norwegian whaler buried at Grytviken Cemetery in 1943) and to celebrate his great-great-grandson Axel Wattø Eide's baptism occurring inOslo, Norway, the same day."
