With each passing day we come closer to the Feast of Feasts, Holy Pascha. Tonight’s Healing Service brought many out to hear prayers and readings in various languages. Father Alexey and Father Moses served together with me, while the readers were encouraged to do more than they usually do. It was also pleasant to see some people whom we had not seen in a few years. Our neighbour texted me a message, “Our resident bear is awake.” This does not mean that the bears will be dangerous, but we shall try to keep out of their way.
