Finnish Christians were not allowed inside the church this year unless they had taken the mRNA vaccination for the coronavirus.
So they stood outside and sang their own Christmas songs.
What a sad but lovely moment. How awful for the priests and pastors to be so hateful on this blessed holiday. Several churches this year designated sections for vaccinated and unvaccinated. That was a better answer.
According to Henna Maria this church is in Oulu, Finland.
Commenter Rita added: it was never about an outer temple or figure anyway… the living temple is within our hearts – the greatest light, music and warmth are also found here.
