Friends of mine invited me to their a place near and dear to their heart, Vang Lutheran Church about 30 or so miles north of Highway 2 in North Dakota. After miles of two-lane highway and gravel road, I had no idea I would see a beauty such as this. I spent about an hour at the site. The church was surrounded by gravestones with birth years as old as 1886. There was a lone tree that framed the church beautifully from behind. And off in the distance, I watched my friend and his daughter walk through his family’s memorials. Hearing his voice in the distance put a smile on my face to know how much this area mean to him. After looking at these photos a few days in a row, I continually fall in love with them over and over again. One building, different angles and colors. Even more, the history of this church makes me speechless: baptisms, weddings, funerals, sermons. Life changing moments have been made here. I’m grateful I was able to capture a small moment in time with this beautiful piece of history to share with others.
