Orthodoxy In An Eccentric Land: The Kiev You Didn’t Know
Published on April 04, 2010
Great post, thanks!
I gather it is Lukianivka (hence the LukianivSka subway station)? Then technically it is Ukrainian Orthodox Church (under supremacy of Moscow) as Russian metropolia has few, if any, parishes in the country and no monastery. For a post-colonial Ukraine this is quite a distinction :)
Thank you! I do plan on writing a book within the next couple of years, but perhaps not one about Ukraine. I'd like to take a long journey somewhere, by train with just a notepad, camera and a few clothes, and write about people and environments that are new to me.
I enjoy when you are observing and reacting to the people and environments. I like the second last line, summing up the perpetuality of Aleksandra's dream. Writing about various districts will someday make it simple to organize and consolidate into a book. Thank you for sharing.
