Sisters in Sweden

Last Sunday I met two extraordinary sisters. Keith and I worshiped in a Swedish church first built in the 12th century. We shared a pew with the sister sitting next to me in the photo. She's a Roma woman from Romania. Afterwards, the church offered all of us coffee or tea. The Swedish sister on the left is one of the church members. She sometimes bakes cakes for the coffee time.
I find it extraordinary that three women with such diverse backgrounds can meet around the same table. And yes, we did celebrate communion.
