As an important holiday to all Christians in general and Knights Templar in particular, let us all reflect on the importance on the holiday and it meaning to us all. Here is the REGC Christmas message for 2019. Merry Christmas from Mizpah Commandery to you and your family!
GRAND COMMANDER’S RESPONSE
To the Eminent Grand Prelate, and all Sir Knights of Pennsylvania, wheresoever dispersed:
Knightly Greetings! Lady Michelle and I sincerely thank the Eminent Grand Prelate for his message.The verse she has chosen, Luke: 2:10-14, and his message, remind us all of the great joy given to us by the coming of God’s Son, our Messiah; Emmanuel, the embodiment of God with us here on earth. What a wondrous thing, that God would become human, and dwell among us. They both also remind us that the all Glory, Honor and Praise should be given to God, for this and the many other blessings He has bestowed upon us. As many of you know, music is very important to both Lady Michelle and me. The singing of the angelic chorus recorded in this verse reminds us that music is both a gift from God and an important way to show Him praise and adoration. So many of the great hymns of faith have inspiring words, often taken directly from scripture, that fill us with joy as we sing them during the Christmas season. Lift up your voices and join the heavenly host in singing unto the Lord of all creation in praise and thanksgiving for His Son, the Christ child,during this joyous holy season, and always. Lady Michelle and I wish you all a very Blessed Christmas as well as a happy and prosperous New Year. Joy to the world, the Lord has come!Yours in His Service,
Richard F. Muth,
