Welcome to Caer Rivendell

In Welsh, caer means a fortress or citadel. It often housed a king and his family as well as his retinue of warriors, monks, scholars, bards, servants, and animals. It could be a smaller kingdom belonging to a larger King.

Rivendell is the name of the house of the elves in The Lord of the Rings series written by J.R.R.Tolkien. Rivendell "was perfect, whether you liked food, or sleep, or work, or story-telling, or singing, or just sitting and thinking best, or a pleasant mixture of them all."

So welcome to Caer Rivendell! We hope you find a mixture of encouragement, challenge, and food for thought as we labor to build a portion of the kingdom of our LORD.
