Christ is Risen! Pascha 2011

April 30, 2011

TweetI had a great Holy Week and Pascha this year. This was one of the best ones I’ve had since my very first, and maybe also my first at seminary. I went for most of the services to Holy Resurrection in Alston, my semi-regular parish in Boston. The church is a Bulgarian parish, so they use the Slavonic style and everything is in English. It’s a lot like the chanting I knew in Taiwan. Since they’re a tad conservative I didn’t feel comfortable carrying around a camera, but I did take a brief video with my phone. For Agape Vespers, I went to the chapel at Holy Cross. Then to the barbecue afterwords. Some of the students started a Greek dance and I grabbed my camera. I took some of the best photos of my life. I had some spectacular close-ups and brilliant action shots. The girls looked beautiful and they guys looked alright, too. These were great photos. At least, I choose to think of them that way. We’ll never know, because when I pulled the camera from my eye to get a preview I realized I hadn’t put a memory card in the camera. Oh, well. Here’s the video.

First New Website Blog Post

April 12, 2011

TweetThis is my post on my new blog. My old blog had become too complex for my busy lifestyle and no one was reading it anyway. I got used to using WordPress for my other, far more interesting blog Far Eastern Transfigurations and found it was easy to work with, so I’ve spent the last week and a half transferring everything here. Hopefully I’ll be posting photos, videos, and other nonsense here most often than before. I think my last post on the other server was in 2009. All my photos and videos are still here. I didn’t transfer everything into WordPress. There were too many pages with too many pictures, so I left some on static pages. So some of the pages may not link properly or may have pictures that don’t show. I did repost a few posts from my previous blog.
