    This is the Church I love. Thank you so much for posting this, Father Stephen. Our family was much blessed by it this afternoon.

    Father this makes perfect sense, thank you. I could make out only one word, любовь but it was the right one.

    These are highlights from a normal liturgy. The iconostasis is quite minimalist, probably for recent (even rebuilding efforts). The liturgy is in Abkhazian and in Slavonic. Some of the chants are quite old.

    Indeed a blessing. What a fabulously beautiful place of worship!

    Lovely to see a woman leading the choir. It’s hard for my Protestant friends to understand how much responsibility women can actually have in the Orthodox Church.

    What a beautiful church! I feel so blessed to be part of so great a Faith. Thanks for posting this video, Father. It moved me greatly.

    Very beautiful, thank you for sharing. I’m living near South Ossetia for the school year, and it’s terrible how politics have affected the relationship between the people here, including the churches, these past several hundred years.
