Flaming red

The people of kremmeldorf wanted their own church so that they would no longer have to walk to church services in peulendorf. He praised the little church as a decorative box that was not as sober as some concrete hall churches. "Our goal should be", according to barthelme in his sermon "to let something flow out of the service into the village community, to let a light radiate from the church."
