Re: “Russians in Rincon

This is a wonderful article, and as a fellow parishioner this brings warmth to my heart..since I grew up in this church, not as a child but as a person, this place is more than a church to me. It is a family. We take religion and tradition to our roots, and welcome everyone. Being a Russian is not only being by blood, but embracing a beautiful culture that is rare, especially in East Georgia. We incorporate all languages we can, to make all those who come feel love and beauty through an Orthodox Christian service that anyone could relate to in their own way.

I don't typically comment on much, but I feel I had to speak on this. It's rare that anyone knows what I say when i mention I'm Russian Orthodox Christian...most of the time I need to put the emphasis on "christian", this way I look to some as half normal. What I mean by this, I believe the same as most. But, I always feel the need to constantly say we are Christian, but stick to tradition. Yes, we walk around with candles at 12 in the night, and we celebrate feasts on different days then others, but we all believe in one thing for certain, one true God.

I guess in all my rant, I would like to say that people like Denise, are one in a million. They recognize a way of life that brings them happiness no matter what. Everyone at this church has given everything they got to make it what it is today, and I can not look forward enough until the day I return for another service. It is and will always grow, when you have individuals like Denise that commit to making a church a home for prayer and worship.
