On October 29, 2021, students and staff members of the ELCIR Theological Institute took a trip visiting ELCIR congregations on the Karelian Isthmus: Steklyanny, Lembolovo, Zelenogorsk, the Kyrönniemi Promontory, Primorsk, Kanneljärvi, and Yukki.
Many thanks to Dr. Sergei Isayev for the opportunity to touch the history of our congregations and of these wonderful places! Many thanks to all the parish pastors for the warm welcome and special thanks to the lady chefs at the Primorsk Congregation for the delicious lunch!
“On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have set watchmen; all the day and all the night they shall never be silent. You who put the LORD in remembrance, take no rest, and give him no rest until he establishes Jerusalem and makes it a praise in the earth.” (Is. 62:6-7)
