St Mark's Chapel Harsens Island

On Harsens Island, St Mark's Chapel has been overlooking freighters and other ships gliding by in the channel for more than 100 years. They have a beautiful outdoor nativity display. They also observe the custom of Oplatek, those thin rectangular wafers that are shared amongst family members at Christmas time. It begins before the meal and as each piece is broken off and shared, we tell people how important they are to us and ask them to forgive and to forget any misunderstandings or blunders on our part. It's pretty humbling. God's blessings.
