In honour of St Lazarus, whose story is told in the Bible (John 11:1-45). Filmed at Kerepesi Cemetery in Budapest, Hungary Full Poem: Where is the darkness of which I heard? Where’s the sting of death we fear?The curtains rolled back at His word Till I found myself standing here The sunlight warm and rich and real, My own eyes shining in its light. The air I breathe, the wind I feel, The rush of every sound and sight. At the words of the Messiah I rose up, the world to meet And a warning shot was fired, Death must ready for defeat. Death could not hold a mortal man And it shall not hold the King. I heard His call, to Him I ran, O death where is thy sting. O death, your threat is null and void. You will become a doorway to the skies.He warned you, you would be destroyed, When He said, “Lazarus, arise.” Read the full story at: https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John+11%3A1-45&version=NKJV Follow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thebrosrobinson
A journey to a new kind of 'normal'. Inspired by a quote attributed to St Maximus the Confessor (a sixth century monk): 'Christianity is an entirely new way of being human.' --- The ordinary has no taste and I am done with the norm. Tired of water that doesn't run cold and of sunlight that never feels warm. Show me a path from the feelings of night, of standing in darkness with nothing in sight. Teach my eyes to see as never before Your presence, in peace, and in the middle of war. Be the answer to questions that burn in my brain. Through the sands of my soul send Your torrents of rain. Transform me now from what I have been, to hear words never heard, and sights never seen. For humanity's path through the eons and ages was nought but a preface for a new sheaf of pages... A new story is writing and now is in reach, and its Author comes, the story to teach. Teach us a new way... to be human. --- Follow us on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/thebrosrobinson/

Nativity in Crochet
This artwork was created by our friend Katherine. It's composed of incredibly intricate crochet work, as well as painted detail on canvas. It's a superb masterpiece that deserves to be seen and depicts the Nativity of Christ. Christmas in Russia, Macedonia, Serbia, Ukraine, Ethiopia, Egypt and other countries is celebrated on the 7th of January. The artwork is inspired by traditional Eastern Orthodox icons of the event and tells the story of Christmas. Joseph contemplates the events taking place, the angels tell the shepherds, and the wise men/magi journey to Bethlehem following the star. At the centre is the stable, in a cave by the town, where Mary stays with the newborn baby Jesus. The words in the frame read "Christ is born" Official selection to the 'Weihnachtsfilmfestival' (Christmas film festival) in Berlin, Germany 2019 Be sure to subscribe to our channel and follow us on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/thebrosrobinson Music is by Salt of the Sound, follow them on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/saltofthesound/
