The Historic St. Nicholas

Hello, again, dear readers,

I am repeating a posting from previous years as there are always new subscribers to the Ortho Thought each year.  God’s blessings for the Feast of St. Nicholas tomorrow.  And, XRONIA POLLA!  MANY YEARS! to each of you who have St. Nicholas as your namesake.  May he remember us all before God’s throne.

St. Nicholas Day is December 6. I would like to share a resource with you that a friend and I put together a few years ago for an educational purpose. It is an Orthodox presentation on the life of St. Nicholas of Myra, parked on a closed YouTube channel.

The video was produced by myself and a brother in Christ from New Zealand, Frank McDonald, while my family was yet serving the Church in Alaska. As many of you know, our family is now serving the Church in Maine.  I apologize that parts of the presentation are "frozen in time" and credits unfinished.  That said, please enjoy the presentation (just under 10 minutes long). May you find it edifying.

Here is the link

Because this is a "closed" YouTube channel, you won't find this presentation by searching on YouTube unless you have the link above.   

Please keep in mind it the presentation is only for the sake of edification and education—it gives a historical profile of the “real” Santa Claus. The presentation itself is not for replication and/or sale nor should any profit be made by sharing it with others.  

Wondrous is God in His Saints!
Pres. Candace Schefe
