[Magdalen] Sunday Funny

This past Sunday I visited the local ROCOR (Russian Orthodox Church Outside
Russia) parish. More about why in another post. But before I made it there,
I had a slight bump along the way. Holy Myrrhbearers Church meets in a
converted dentist's office building and you go around back to get there.
It's really pretty well marked except....which door to go in. I opened the
first door and found myself in a tiny congregation of black faces with a
liturgy being chanted in a *very* unfamiliar tongue. A lovely lady looked
at me with an expression of part understanding and part amusement and said,
"You look for Russia? Next door." Between the combination of the expression
on her face and the way she put the question it was all I could do not to
break into a fit of giggles. However, I followed her directions and shortly
found myself in Russia...er, the correct place.
