Eghersis is a transliteration of the Greek word, εγερσις, which has the meaning of being roused to life. Thus, it is my hope that what you find on this blog will empower, arouse, stimulate, excite, and animate your life--your soul, your spirit--the wholeness of who you are.
I love this icon because it represents the divinity and the humanity of Christ. As you view the icon, you'll notice that the face is asymmetrical. If you hold a mirror vertical to the face and over the nose, you will see two different faces for each side. Thus, this icon images the two natures of Christ, his humanity and his divinity.
