Pauper statue

Pauper statue

"Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord" - Proverbs 19:17

On Sunday morning I took a bus to Teisko, which is where I could find a pauper statue closest to my home. It still is part of Tampere, but it takes one hour bus drive to get there.

I've just finished reading about the pauper statues in Finland and Sweden. Very interesting take on today's challenge, Sami.

Yes, and burning the whole church is also a very sad thing that happens every now and then =/
