to walk worthily of the Lord, pleasing him in all respects

Lent, Day 19: Too long have I had my dwelling among those who hate peace.

Today's image and the next 14 are inspired by the Songs of Ascent (pss 120-134). These psalms were song by pilgrims en route to Jerusalem; I hope as we make pilgrimage with Jesus to Good Friday, they will sustain us.

St Petersburg 100
At this church, which abuts a cemetery in St. Petersburg, Russia, several men were executed by communists in, if I recall correctly, the 1920s. The church fell into disrepair, though now the Orthodox church is raising money to restore it.
