Bright Week, Bright Spring

This year Spring took a while coming. Weather has been slow to change but finally, during Holy and Bright week, we began to see the signs of life again. We celebrated all the services in Edinburgh with the help of Fr Raphael, Fr Luke, Fr Avraamy and it was a blessing to see so many children as well as senior members of the community coming along. While the building has a long way to go, the important things – the laos – the people, are there and are serving with their presence. In spite of a small disturbance at the Resurrection matins, the overall feeling was one of renewal, life and joy. Glory to God, Christ is Risen! He is Risen indeed!
