Hello dear friends! I pray this Sunday finds you all well. I find myself at home this Sunday. We've been battling covid in our household and though we are feeling much, much better we thought we'd wait one more Sunday before heading back to the crowds. I've missed being at Church. Reading through the hymns… Continue reading Blessed Sunday!
Resurrection hymnography every single Sunday continues even though we are in the preparatory period before Great Lent Begins, the Triodion. The Sundays leading up to Great Lent all have a theme and are meant to prepare us for the fasting season.

I just love the fact… Continue reading Lead All Into My Kingdom
Welcome to Sunday, the Lord's day. The day we are reminded that Christ is Risen. Everyday. He has conquered death. I love Sundays. One of my favorite parts of the hymnography for the Resurrection is that over and over again we hear how Christ has conquered death. He has brought light from darkness. It is… Continue reading Sunny Sunday
Good morning and welcome to Sunny Sunday! Each Sunday I write and post about Resurrection hymns we sing each Saturday evening and Sunday at Liturgy. I absolutely love being able to do this. It has truly been influential in my climbing out of the darkness. And as I was trying to come up with a… Continue reading Sunny Sunday
