Traquillity in Vallentuna Church



This smithwork chandelier can be found in Vallentuna church. Paradoxically, the photograph was shot on Midsummer's eve. Families celebrating the pagan holiday of summer solstice apparently stopped by the Christian church to light a candle on their way home...!

The burning candle carries dome degree of symbolism to most people, whether church-going Christians or not. Generally will be associated with hope, a light in the darkest hour.

Also, it has a remarkable ability to induce a sense of calm and tranquillity upon a stress-pressured mind. So, why not take the time to light a candle and give yourself a moment of peace and reflection every once in a while?
