St. Thomas Orthodox Church, Waldorf, Maryland (ACROD) is nearing the completion of their new Church building. The building is being constructed in the traditional wooden style of eastern Slovakia, southwest Poland and Transcarpathian Ukraine. http://www.somdnews.com/stories/03302011/indymor141737_32369.shtml

What a beautiful temple!
"Hades is not a place, no, but a state of the soul. It begins here on earth. Just so, paradise begins in the soul of a man here in the earthly life. Here we already have contact with the divine..." -St. John, Wonderworker of Shanghai and San Francisco, Homily On the Sunday of Orthodoxy

Interesting looking, thanks for posting! :)
"as [you've] informed us that respect chills love, it is natural to conclude that all your pretty flights arise from your pampered sensibility; and that, vain of this fancied preeminence of organs, you foster every emotion till the fumes, mounting to your brain, dispel the sober suggestions of reason. It is not in this view surprising that when you should argue you become impassioned, and that reflection inflames your imagination instead of enlightening your understanding." - Mary Wollstonecraft
