Who is the Church Traveler?

Bettina the Church Traveler

After studying languages, history, politics, and philosophy and working in many jobs including in the defense industry  I gave it all up to go to Seminary for three years. But the call to adventure was still strong, and so instead of getting ordained I decided the world was my congregation.

I like to travel, although I’m no expert. I like churches, but also mosques, synagogues, people, cultures and ideas.

Here are some of my adventures exploring these places of worship, and other religious sites and experiences. I am particularly interested in architecture, altar spaces and the rituals performed there, stained glass, community space and activities, denominational and liturgical differences, sermons, and exploring how I feel in a particular religious space and setting.

When I’m not galavanting around inner and outer worlds, I make a living as a freelance linguist in Berlin.

Come join me as I travel the amazing world of religion, faith, and spirituality—but also the occasional heresy, hypocrisy and paradox of modern life.
