Alleluia, Christ is Risen!
It is not actually Easter for another few weeks for the Orthodox Church in Bulgaria, but for the ex-pat community and other non-Orthodox congregations who worship in Sofia, today was most definitely Easter Day. In the “Annunciation of the Lord” chapel on Oborishte 5, the English speaking community of Anglicans, Methodists, Episcopalians, Roman Catholics celebrated the Good News of the resurrection as one. With 25 adults and 23 children the chapel was as full as I have ever seen it – praise God!
After the service a small group of us went out for Easter bunch at the Hilton hotel….which left us feeling as full as the chapel had been a few hours earlier!
Wishing all our readers a happy and blessed Easter.
