An interesting point

“Char” appears over a dozen times in Badarak, notably it is the last word of the Hayr Mer/Our Father (in the form “char-e” “from evil”). The root composition of this word is made up of the negative prefix “չ” “ch”, which means “not” and the word “ար” “ar” which means “to make, create.”

Thus, in Armenian, evil is to “not create,” literally to cause de-struction, unmaking what God the creator has made for, His and our eternal glory.

A church building, often simply called a church, is a building used for religious activities, particularly worship services. The term in its architectural sense is most often used by Christians to refer to their religious buildings but can be used by other religions.

Badarak, the Eastern Orthodox Eucharistic rite, is a form of public worship; ritual, a collection of formularies for public worship, a particular arrangement of services, a particular form or type of the Eucharistic service, and the service of the Eucharist, esp. this service (Divine Liturgy) in the Eastern Church.

Liturgy, Late Latin lītūrgia, from late Greek leitourgía Eucharist, lēitourgía public service, or lḗït, derivative of lāós, leṓs people (compare lay) + -ourgia –urgy. Lay means to cause, put or set while urgy means making, production of the thing specified by the initial element.
