The Church in Chelyabinsk

For those who follow things Russian, NPR has recently been broadcasting a series of reports on life in Chelyabinsk, a central Russian city she has recently revisited after several years. Her specific report on the Russian Orthodox Church in Chelyabinsk is here. (Click on the “listen now” line near the top to actually hear the report.) Nothing surprising to those of us who take an interest in such things, but interesting nonetheless.

I have mixed feelings about this piece and its depiction of the Russian Orthodox Church, but I’ll keep them to myself. I’d be interested in any else’s thoughts, though.
