khristos voskrese

Easter service was wonderful. Not that we should ever go beyond the cross, but Protestant (or Evangelical?) Christianity is great at proclaiming the death and crucifixion of Christ, but it is sometimes lacking in proclaiming the resurrection. I myself tend to be more comfortable with the sorrow of Good Friday than the rejoicing of Easter Sunday. Must rejoice more.
Seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.
Jeremiah 29:7


  1. happy easter!

    i agree too about lent+goodfriday outshining(?) easter sometimes.
    but his resurrection is what makes his death meaningful and complete, yeah? :)

    btw, what does your title mean? is it another language?

  2. it means christ is risen in russian.

    It's a common russian orthodox greeting.
    "christ is risen"
    "he is risen indeed"

    the orthodox church is great at celebrating the resurrection :)
