The Norwegian Lutheran Memorial Church welcomes Eyvind Skeie! Rev. Skeie is well known for his many hymns and songs. His most famous song is En stjerne i natt (“A Star is Shining Tonight”), co-written with Tore W. Aas. The song has been recorded by, among others, Oslo Gospel Choir and Swedish singer Carola Häggkvist. Skeie has written extensively for Norwegian children’s TV programs including Portveien 2. Skeie was also the staff writer for the original 77 episodes of the Norwegian language productions of Sesam Stasjon (Sesame Street) and wrote lyrics for many of the songs used in those shows. He also has published books of hymns and meditations.
In 2007, the King of Norway made him a Commander in the Order of St. Norway. Eyvind continues to write, developing programs for schools and kindergartens to stop bullying and prevent child-trafficking.
