He is risen

He is risen indeed.

About pcNielsen
Paul Nielsen founded The Aesthetic Elevator late in 2005. He owns a piece of paper, located somewhere in his house (not on the wall), stating that he earned a B.F.A. from the University of Nebraska around about 2001. While there, he studied studied architecture, graphic design and ceramics, graduating with a degree in studio art. Paul presently serves as communications manager for a small non-profit doing their print design and marketing. He spends as much time sculpting in his studio as possible — which is not nearly enough.

    I love Easter hymns. Happy Easter, Paul.

      I grew to love Christ the Lord is Risen Today, mainly because we heard it so much in my grandparent’s Lutheran church at Easter. With choir, brass and real pipes it gives me chills every time. Probably helped me be able to appreciate the pipe organ later in life too. Growing up in a church with an electric organ (where every song was played more or less like a dirge) isn’t a very fair way to treat the instrument.
