Dr. Chris Barnekov has, over the years, opened his home to students from Scandinavia studying at Concordia Theological Seminary. He also hosts many great gatherings there, so that the Scandinavia House, through Dr. Barnekov, has become an important artery for communication between confessional Lutheranism in Scandinavia and America. Kristina and I are happy to call Chris a friend. We think he'll be proud of some of his former tenants!
