Bring Church to the People

Many Christians, depending on their denomination, may have heard the challenge to not simply try to bring people to church, but “bring church to the people.” Apparently the Russian Orthodox Church, with the help of (and in the service of) the Russian military, has found a more literal way of doing that than I ever envisaged:

      Yeah, pretty depressing. As St. John Chrysostom said, “The road to Hell is paved with the skulls of bishops.”
