This morning we gathered at 5:30am to celebrate the resurrection together along the gorgeous Dnepr River in our hometown of RZ Ukraine. Today was overcast, casting a shadow on my creative sunrise video efforts but here you go anyway:)

In Russian/Ukrainian Orthodox tradition, everyone greets one another during this day with “Christ Has Risen!” or “Христос воскрес!” The one greeted then responds with “Truly He Has Risen!” or “Воистину воскрес!”. In the video, the Ukrainian believers (and some missionaries) are responding with the later.
