Never Alone

By Tommi Karjalainen

The photo raises questions about the church as an institution that upholds Christian practice. More importantly, it asks what is the role of an individual in the believing community. The clergy seems to be leading the service, and many are participating in worship, but are they really? The lady in the foreground is in focus, and only she has raised her hand in worship. Who is she? Why is she different? What is she thinking? Is her faith (more) genuine? What does her family think? Does she care?
