Fredericksburg, TX (PRWEB) December 02, 2011
Many people have experiences that greatly affected their lives – events that they cannot explain. In “Journey into Wisdom Everlasting: from the Epiphanic Archives” (published by iUniverse), author Kenn Knopp writes about his epiphany experiences that occurred during his ministry as an ordained Catholic deacon from 1974 to 2011.
“Journey into Wisdom Everlasting” is Knopp’s own journal of these special events that occurred in not only his life, but the lives of others who have shared similar stories and experiences. Knopps says that “each story was selected to provide insight into a number of predicaments that people get into at various stages into their journey of enlightenment and personal growth.”
Excerpt from the story, “the healing of a memory”:
Perhaps she then assessed the ages in the room and brought the review of possible memories to a conclusion. She then thanked the Lord for the gift of memory and any recollection that might be stirred up. Sometimes the memory was not at all pleasant and might call for forgiving or apologizing to someone. Or, perhaps a most pleasant memory popped up calling for more expressions of appreciation and thankfulness toward someone special, or particularly God.
“Churches do not give sufficient time for people to express or share their epiphany or enlightenment stories so that they can give reason for the joy they have experienced,” says Knopp. “Putting these stories into a book might help them give God credit or praise for the supernatural gifts of blessing they have experienced that can only be attributed to the supernatural grace or love of the Creator, God.”
All profits from this book will go toward supporting: Tuition Scholarships for High School Early College Prep, to fulfill the dream of creating Bishop Frederick High School Prep, and the development of St. Frederick Village & Chapel, Retirement Center for seniors in Fredericksburg, Texas.
