In Helsinki, Finland, you can find more than one community of Orthodox Church. There is the Finnish Orthodox Church, which has about 20,000 members, and there is also the Russian Orthodox Church, with some 2,400 adherents. The Russian congregation is planning to build a new church, which had caused some stir between the two groups; however, it is said that thanks in part to the efforts of Finnish Archbishop Leo, things are getting better.

My only weakness is, well, never mind

He said he had a horrible house
I looked in it and learnt to shut my mouth

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river
