Merry Christmas from all of us at Episcopal Café


And thanks to the Rev. Peter Pearson for this Christmas icon. Peter is priest in charge at Saint Philip’s Church in New Hope, Pa. He is a former Benedictine monk, an icon painter (and our editor in chief's former roommate when they worked at Camp Saint Andrew in Tunkhannock, Pa.)

What a beautiful icon! I find it interesting that icons are said to be written instead of drawn or painted. There is a priest in this diocese who writes beautiful ones. It must take incredible patience.

What a surprising and delightful image. Thank you, Ann, for posting this. I'd be most interested in seeing his other icons.

That Icon is awesome and inspiring!

A truly beautiful image of beautiful Truth. Blessed Nativity...
