Miesau Reformed Church

Before leaving Miesau, we visited the Reformed Church (the only church in Miesau) that was rebuilt in 1738. Martha's friend Ellen is good friends with the pastor, who opened the church for us to see. He used a term that translated "farmer simple" to describe the elegantly austere interior, with no stained glass, elevated pulpit and fenced table (the call it in German a "closet") for both the word and the eucharist.
