    Hello, I saw your comment on Fr Longenecker’s blog regarding the “painting” of the Risen Christ. I didn’t want to monopolize his com box, but saw that noone had responded, so I hope you don’t mind me doing so here. The painting is an Eastern, either Orthodox or Eastern Catholic icon. Icons are windows into heaven. It is called the Anastasis and is one of the most important iconographic images found. Every element, color and gesture is meaningful, telling the story of the depiction. I can go into a little more detail if you are interested. Please let me know. I’m not an expert, by any means, but am learning about icons since I embroider them. BTW iconographers refer to their work as writing. It really is an opportunity to see the Lord work through the artist’s hands. While working on the icon I’m embroidering right now, the Pantocreator, I keep looking at it, thinking, Hmmm, but when I get up and look from a different angle I have no idea how I did the work. It’s like having the Holy Spirit working through my hands, the thread and needle with my consent but not control. The Lord Is RISEN! Blessed Pascha, Anne Gomes

    Ha, I came here as well to comment on the Anastasis! I use the Anastasis in my catechism class to discuss Easter and the line from the Creed “he descended into Hell.”

    The Anastasis pitch I give to 6th graders is at the end of this post:

    Saw your comment on Big Hollywood about ‘Justified’.

    To answer your question: Yes, Boyd Crowder does become a true believing born again Christian. I’m a Christian too so I was half expecting a sucker punch through the season, but the story just kept on getting better and better. I highly recommend the series.

    Hello, just found your blog from following a link on your comment on David French’s article on Patheos. I am an Ann Arbor resident too, from the North East part of town, Green and Glazier area.
    Am glad to have found your blog, and am looking forward to reading it on a regular basis.

    BTW, a few friends are thinking about forming a serious First Things discussion group.
