Church windows

HKBP church’s windows of Church Street in Pematang Siantar, North Sumatra, Indonesia. Old stock photo from back in 2008.

This is our church, one of HKBP  churches in my hometown Pematang Siantar–I took my confirmation here many, many, years ago, btw. An old — the building was commenced in 1907 — smallish, white-washed, austere looking church lacking churchly artifices in its interior and exterior. At a glance, the architecture speaks more of strength than beauty. Yet, there are a few ornaments of soft colors like the etched glass of its windows shown in the pic, which shine out of its plain walls. Makes it the more adorable.
