Revival of temples in the village of

Ya I do not try to edify or try the reflections on this subject someone to convict of unreasonableness. I only want to pay your attention to correctness of that way which Cossacks of the Village " went; Klimovsk and Boriso - Glebsky kurenya for which destinies of the dying villages of our small Homeland are not indifferent. I want your understanding and active partnership.

Here I listened to the song " which is already forgotten by me just recently; The Well, a well, Let`s waters get drunk which sense surprised me with the semantic depth and accord with the question of the dying mudflow which is constantly present at me and an upcoming event of Cossacks of the Klimovsk area at first of restoration of the collapsing temple that is in the village of Krapivnoye.

Behind the belt road,

As hi from the past,

of

the Corner thrown Met to us you.

the Become empty old house,

Without fault left,

I a well under the

window With the sky overturned.
At first sight much can seem to

strange and illogical that Cossacks instead of primary as we are spoken above by the mentioned analysts and men of science from economic sciences, tasks of improvement of the welfare begin to restore the temple in the dying village.

But, everything is simple, this strangeness and an illogicality has under themselves centuries-old experience of their ancestors. Which it is constant, being in essence and the nature people of war, were on pain of death and had the clear and clear understanding checked by time and experience of many fights that actually initially and that minor matter though that and necessary.

Cossacks have accurate and immutable as an axiom a saying Without God not to a threshold .

All historians note the fact that Cossacks regardless of their army accessory during creation of the villages and camps or transfer of a secha as at Zaporozhetses, at first put the temple, and then all the rest, including also defensive walls. At the Kuban Cossacks, following traditions of the ancestors of Zaporozhetses, all temples were folding which if necessary understood and then were established on the new place.

The temple for the sake of Arkhistratiga Mikhail, the villages of Krapivna of the Klimovsk region of the Bryansk region the Wooden odnoprestolny temple for the sake of Arkhistratiga Mikhail was built by

in 1892. Nearly forty years passed Church services in it. In Imperial time the priest Iosif Vakulovsky who for special merits before Church, the Sacred Synod was awarded by a naperstny Cross served here. But burst godless revolutions and in 1930 the church was closed. At that time the priest Serafim Dmitriyevich Kowalewski served in the temple it was from Cossacks, the native of the farm of Aleynikov of Starodubsky district. On November 19, 1937 lake. Serafim was arrested on a charge of belonging to counterrevolutionary group and sentenced by the three of UNKVD to eight years of ITL. Then for eight decades the temple is invalid.

In the last several years the temple, as a result of a strong dilapidation underwent destruction. The belltower arch, partially fell upon an old cemetery, partially in a structure. The closest territory of the temple and the cemetery adjoining it began to turn into difficult passable thicket from a loznyak.

On the common decision Cherkasy of Boriso - Glebsky kurenya Zaporozhsko of the Cherkassk army society and Cossacks of the Village Klimovsk Bryansko Severskogo of the Cossack district, began on September 25, 2010 works on prevention of further destruction of the temple.

I do not try to edify or try the reflections on this subject someone to convict of unreasonableness. I only want to pay your attention to correctness of that way which Cossacks of the Village " went; Klimovsk and Boriso - Glebsky kurenya for which destinies of the dying villages of our small Homeland are not indifferent. I want your understanding and active partnership. And it is possible then you on new and unexpectedly for yourself you will hear words of the song mentioned already by me:

We not for nothing came here: here offenses will come to an end.

I to say goodbye forever to us to you will be ceased to want.

We here still will come that in mistakes to repent -

of a well, even in the afternoon stars are reflected.

A well, a well, let`s waters get drunk!

the Well, a well, give the sky of throats!

Perhaps, perhaps, still will come back

Happy time and to our corner.
