Созерцать или Созидать – посвящается памяти протоиерея Симеона Кичакова

Для любого священнослужителя, где бы он ни начинал своё служение, жизнь начинается с нуля.  Нужно завоевать доверие прихожан, разобраться в разнице их духовной жизни, помнить, что нет права на созерцание, а есть право на созидание.

19 лет назад протоиерей Симеон Кичаков начал свою жизнь с нуля, получив свой первый приход Всех Скорбящих Радость в Джилонге, в котором служил до ухода на покой по болезни. (more…)
