Happy Christmas (1 of 2)

Happy Christmas to all Golmalsters. The symbolism of the icon, The Lord of All Unity:
The position of Christ’s right hand is especially significant. As described by John Baggley in Doors of Perception: “Christ’s right hand is raised in a gesture of blessing that is turned towards the heart, indicating the inner knowledge of Christ that is given outward expression in the open book.” Jesus is placing before our eyes by means of the scripture verse the great desire of His heart for unity and the reason for His gift of glory. This unity is not only unity among Christian believers but also unity in homes, communities and in every human heart.
Thanks to Printery House for the icon and the text.
