Sunday Best*

Happy Sunday Beloved!
I was going to post this after the weekend,
but thought this would be just perfect for a 'Sunday-Best' post!
By faith*, nicely stumbled upon this...& must share!
Ooohhh...may I describe a church as errr...CUTE ?!
why not... LENORENEVERMORE was instantly charmed
by this CUTE church building... Hallelujah moment indeed! ~Amen!
.
[ in Northern Ostrobothnia - a region of Finland ]
Designed by Anssi Lassila, winner of student competition
hosted by University of Oulu. To view the building process click here*

Went to the church's website, would that count as me going to church today?

Wondering what they used the flax for. I don't see a thatched roof. hmmm still wondering...

A beautiful piece of architecture, that student will go far.

The architecture of this church is amazing, but it's the setting and the scenery that just makes my jaw drop.
