Low Sunday in Bucharest
Low Sunday and the clocks going forward on the same morning.......................... Ten minutes before the service started we had an organist, one church warden, plus the chaplain and reader and their families, and that was all! And then, in true Church of the Resurrection style the church changed from being almost empty to being almost full.
It was wonderful to have flowers in church again after our Lenten abstenance from colour (and Gloria!). The Sunday School continued their studies in the school room and at the end of the service Laffy shared with the rest of the congregation a summary of what they had covered.
Pride of place close to the altar was given over to the Pascal candle and our newly received painting of Christ on the cross
