Blogging is something that I've resisted until now. Who cares what I have to say about most things, really?!
But three weeks ago, I was in Moscow, witnessing history. The Russian Orthodox Church Abroad, into which I was born, reunited with the Church of Russia, after a long, arduous, and controversial process. (For more about the reunification process, you can read the materials of the commissions that worked on it here. ) I got to be there, as a member of the Emigre Choir put together by the choirmaster of the Synodal Cathedral in Manhattan, where I sing on a regular basis.
Unfortunately, the reunification continues to resonate with controversy. But most people I know have been excited to hear all about the trip, and, with so many vivid impressions, I need to catalogue them somewhere. Why not somewhere that makes it accessible to all those inquiring ? Hence this blog. Welcome.
