I discovered a previously unkown fact today while at St George Greek Orthodox Church in Hamilton Township, New Jersey. Jesus rose two times. Hey, I didn't say it. A parishoner did, although it was tongue-in-cheek. Today is Easter (the day celebrating the rising from the dead of Jesus Christ) according to Greek Orthodox tradition, whereas the rest of Christianity celebrated Easter last Sunday. Anyway, before there's hell to pay, let me tell you I can't imagine a better church for photography. The iconography, the artwork and the lighting, not to mention the people! Absolutely georgeous! I always feel humbled to be a welcome guest in something as personal to a group of people as a house of worship.
