This thread is for pictures, it could be paintings of the church, as well, that you saw and like. It would be advisable if it is educational as it is a christian forum.  For today I like this one:

A demotivational picture joke about my friend:

Bag, railway station, *Hat'ki (name of a village she lives in)!

Another one joke: our common friend who is an ethnographer has a theory that this village's name should be pronounced 'Hat'ki' while all the villagers say it 'Haćki'.

"Even 20-degree frost has not prevented today, Epiphany, the faithful bathe in Stary Oskol river waters. In one jordan plunged ordinary citizens, officials and athletes. Multiple world champion in MMA Fedor Emelianenko on this day specially arrived in Stary Oskol, to purify themselves and gain strength and health for the whole year.

Water in the river consecrated Father Andrew, rector of St. Nicholas Church, the spiritual mentor Stary Oskol champion. Together with the parish, Archpriest thrice plunged into the river Oskol. The first employee of the city administration in the Jordan Oskol plunged Basil Tinyakov, Head of Industry, Transport and Communications Authority Stary Oskol city district.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
