Christmas 2014

May the Christ Child be fully present to you in this season of Christmas, and may you and your family be blessed in the coming year.

“Bethlehem has opened Eden: Come, let us see! We have found joy hidden! Come, let us take possession of the paradise within the cave.

There the unwatered stem has appeared, from which forgiveness blossoms forth! There the undug well is found from which David longed to drink of old! There the Virgin has borne a child, and at once the thirst of Adam and David is made to cease.

Therefore let us hasten to this place where for our sake the eternal God was born as a little child!”

Anonymous from the hymn, Ikos of the Nativity of the Lord

May the Christ Child be fully present to you in this season of Christmas, and may you and your family be blessed in the coming year. Thank you for your prayers this past year.

  1. May the hope that was born
    that silent, holy night remain
               in your heart
           throughout the year.

             Merry Christmas

  3. Hi Bishop Knisely. I made a tentative offer regarding the slave museum if all goes well with my Black and Irish musical play on Broadway. I expected a response because of the potential money involved for the project and just need to know if you received my email. Regards.

  4. There the un-researched thesis falsifies the accepted theory

    There the un-derived synthetic a-priori is its own proof

    There the where-and-when becomes the always here-and-now

    There our sought-after loving has become our realized being-loved

    Now the Kenosis of the Cross is anticipated by the Kenosis of the flesh
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    God’s Blessing once more upon you,+Nick and your family
