Vesløs congregation church in the North West of Denmark. I have ancestors here.
The altar shows Jesus healing the blind beggar. It reads:
‘Receive your sight; your faith has healed you’, it is from The Gospel of Luke, chapter 18, verses 35-43:
35 As Jesus approached Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging. 36 When he heard the crowd going by, he asked what was happening. 37 They told him, “Jesus of Nazareth is passing by.”
38 He called out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”
39 Those who led the way rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”
40 Jesus stopped and ordered the man to be brought to him. When he came near, Jesus asked him, 41 “What do you want me to do for you?”
“Lord, I want to see,” he replied.
42 Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight; your faith has healed you.” 43 Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus, praising God. When all the people saw it, they also praised God.
The town has another church, Vesløs Church in Vesløs Field. It had an open porch, and a closed wooden door into the ship. With winged evangelists; Man is Matthew, The Eagle is John, The Lion is Marcus and the Ox is Luke.
In the town of Vesløs there is also an inn adjacent to a mixed arts gallery with liquor shop.

Kastrup Church, Denmark. Svend Wiig Hansen, The wounded man, 1974
I’d show you Kastrup / Knees
I’ll show you the city’s best use of concrete
For worming, soft seats in an area where
Dogs run free
with grass and needles to wag the tail in
Here is a circle bathing area on the water, here is concrete to ride and to walk on, it feels good in that
which you like
Sand and water
I’ll treat you to an ice cream or to a wienerschnitzel to the right or kebab to the left as you please
Here is Circus Summarum, we could watch that if you were here
Here is my friend
She has been working her ass off until 20 in the circus tent this evening
I know her, she will invite us to her home in an enchanted garden where
You must see Kastrup church
Hail the council who called Svend Wiig Hansen
It makes me want to write
In the Spirit of the Lord, so lovingly, refined. So embracing
An answer, a wish, a thank you, to The Father, The Son and
To the Holy Spirit, who makes life worth living
You could see my garden
My father’s stone garden and good dram
A bit of me
“Behold, I am making all things new.”

The Holy Spirit may seem artistically helped here, but it is still the Sun that adds the Shine.
