Ylivieska’s wooden church
The church was built in 1786, and was
renovated in 1892. In the church park
there are several monuments dedicated
to famous people from Ylivieska,
for example Pietari Päivärinta.
Also there is a museum in the church’s
bell tower.

Oh it's Christian.

Religions in Finland

Most Finns are Christians. The largest religious community in Finland is the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland (Suomen evankelis-luterilainen kirkko), to which about 78% of the population belongs. The Orthodox Church of Finland is the second largest religious community. Slightly over 1% of the population belongs to the Orthodox Church. The Evangelical Lutheran Church and the Orthodox Church enjoy special status in Finland. They are entitled to levy taxes, for example.

Tens of thousands of Muslims live in Finland. However, only a portion of them belong to Islamic communities.

Other religious communities in Finland include Jehovah’s Witnesses, the Evangelical Free Church of Finland, the Catholic Church in Finland, and the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Finland.

Most people in Finland are at least nominally members of a Christian church. There are presently two state churches: the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland, which is the primary state religion and has a membership of about three quarters of the population, and the Finnish Orthodox Church, to which about one percent of the population belongs.[1][2] Those who officially belong to the two state churches have part of their taxes turned over to their church.[3] People can also belong to one or more registered religious communities (there were 96 in 2013).[3] Other religions practiced in Finland include Islam (about 60,000 in 2013[3]) and Judaism. Prior to Christianisation beginning the 11th century, Finnish paganism was the primary religion.

It was suspected arson while it was still on fire and they arrested a guy a couple of hours later who confessed. The motive is still unknown 13.gif

Happy Easter, guys!

It's time change in Britain and here's an article on knocker-uppers.

Some great history stuff here...:)

Quote: But how did people get to work on time before alarm clocks?

Until the 1970s in some areas, many workers were woken by the sound of a tap at their bedroom window. On the street outside, walking to their next customer's house, would be a figure wielding a long stick.

The "knocker upper" was a common sight in Britain, particularly in the northern mill towns, where people worked shifts, or in London where dockers kept unusual hours, ruled as they were by the inconstant tides.

"They used to come down the street with their big, long poles," remembers Paul Stafford, a 59-year-old artist who was raised above a shop in Oldham.

"I would sleep with my brother in the back room upstairs and my parents slept in the front.

"[The knocker upper] wouldn't hang around either, just three or four taps and then he'd be off. We never heard it in the back, though it used to wake my father in the front."

That's a good thing. Never let such mundane things get the better of you.
