Churches deserve to be preserved. SOGK does that. Beautiful memories of passing away, being born, living, suffering: all cherished by thick stone walls. And SOGK cherishes those walls. But can not keep them alive without people. Without the generations and generations of vistors, users: passers-by.
Our mirror-church is a tribute to all the passers-by. Volunteers, church councils, neighbors, the ones that pray. Photographer Taco Anema captured them in photos. We have exhibited these images with our church of mirrors. Three meters high, mirrors all around. A solid foundation symbolizing the loyalty of all those passers-by, their pictures being projected at the stained glass windows.
Walking around the little church, you will hear the church's timepiece ticking time away and see all the passers-by. Including yourself. In the mirrors. Being a passer-by yourself. A contributor to history in that very moment. Honoring churches. And their passers-by.
