"Heidrun". My home for Christmas this year situated in Haltenbanken. Here I will work as a priest, and be a curious contributer to a nice Christmas for oil workers and everyone else who spends the holidays at sea on this platform!
This is by no means a church. But for the most part the Church is where people gather, I think, and therefore Heidrun is an equally perfect place for meetings with believers and non-believers, like anywhere else.
Oil workers have always done, and still do, an extremely important job for you and for me in order for us to be able to enjoy the welfare we surround us with every day! Therefore, I urge you all to send these people a thought of gratitude for Christmas, and also in your daily life; without them we might not have this glorious land that we in fact live in.
The Heidrun platform is named after the goat with the same name in Norse mythology; Heidrun stands on top of Valhall's roof and eats of the tree "Lærad". The fallen men, who came to Asgard when they died, where taken care of by Heidrun's milk that allowed everyone to drink their utmost.
I look forward to visiting this platform, and I will do my part in order to represent the Seamans Church in the best possible way. With the greatest respect for the sea and for the work carried out at Heidrun.
Thanks to the Seamans Church for the opportunity!
