in the hour of our faith

I had the opportunity to spend some time with the people of Holy Resurrection Orthodox Church while they worshipped in Claremont, NH. Although I am baptized, my understanding of such devotion is limited. My family emigrated from Russia when I was very young — where I come from, religion was literally illegal. I am also the child of two scientsits. As a result I’ve grown into a very pragmatic, liberal adult, but a curiosity and appreciation for that unknown still lingers in me. My favorite part of this experience was getting to feel a strong sense of community, so rare everywhere else.
