Incidentally, most of the Amish observe Christmas on January 6th.

WGW, you say you "think" a lot of things in re the Roman church and Nativity. Is this in the nature of a hunch, or what was your process there?

It either means "I have considered, based on that which I have read and my understanding thereof, that this is so, but am not certain," or less commonly, that "I have considered. based on my experience of the Orthodox faith and my discussion of these expereinces of faith with orhers, and reading of relevqnt scriptural and patristic texts, that this is so, but am not certain."

Yet you use the phrase to introduce so very many diverse assertions -- that is what prompted me to ask, not the phrase itself.
