The Reformed Church In Grindelwald

Grindelwald is small town in the Swiss Alps, surrounded by a number of famous mountains: the Wetterhorn, the Mönch, the Jungfrau, and of course the most (in)famous one of all: the Eiger.

In the village a beautiful small idyllic church is located. A number of graves in the church yard behind the church are from mountaineers who died during climbing expeditions.

We also visited the church on Sunday to attend a baptism service led by Pfarrer Klaus-Dieter Hägele. Not only did he preach about the cornerstone of our lives (Isaiah 28:16), he also gave a demonstration by stapling one stone on top of another. Andreas Menzi accompanied the service on organ and piano. One of the pieces he played is an old time favorite of mine from the great American songbook: ‘Love is here to stay’ by George & Ira Gershwin.

Grindelwald in the rain and snow

In October I had the opportunity to spend a couple of days in beautiful Grindelwald (CH). A village surrounded by famous mountains; the Eiger, the Jungfrau, and the Mönch. The first day was there was drizzling rain all day, the second day it snowed. Due to the clouds, I did not have much opportunity to see the mountains. However, due to the fact that my Nikon D750 and Tamron 35 1.8 lens are weatherproof, I did manage to take a number of pictures. I hope you enjoy them!
