Sunday, August 7, 2016 – Outlaws, Then and Now

Sunday, August 7 at 11:00 a.m. – Outlaws, Then and Now – On this day in 1772, Fjalla-Eyvindur (Eyvindur of the Mountains) and his wife, Halla, were arrested on Sprengisandi. Fjalla-Eyvindur escaped and, two weeks later, freed Halla. They spent the next two decades living on the Icelandic highlands … and working their way into the nation’s folklore. What is it about the outlaw that captures the human imagination? Who are the outlaws today who will be the subject of legends a century or two from now? Rev. Stefan Jonasson

Services are in the Gimli Unitarian Church's landmark building at 76 Second Avenue, near Centre Street. Dress is casual — after all, it's summer!
