This old church is a Wilmington landmark. The interior is gorgeously plain, in the Lutheran style, with exquisite stained glass windows, hard wooden pews, and memorials to the congregation’s various “movers and shakers” from time long past. Each year, the Swedish tradition of Lucia is performed in a moving, candlelit ceremony. The graveyard that surrounds the church contains tombstones, old and new, that remind us of the impermanence and beauty of the human condition.
