UKRAINIAN LADIES SELLING PUSSY WILLOWS NEXT TO THE ORTHODOX CHURCH
We are often asked by young believers in our church why we do not follow this practice. After all, they have been reared in a society where this religious practice is very normal and something that all of their friends and relatives do. So, why does our church not follow suit? We explain that we are mindful of Christ's death and resurrection EVERY Sunday, and that we live a victorious life DAILY because of what Christ has done for us through His death and resurrection. But, we do not carry on with the "buying and blessing," since this aspect is not found in Scriptures.
