Christ is Risen! Pascha 2011

I 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.
