¡Hola!

Hello, and welcome to kniley.com, the freshly redesigned web site of Bob Kniley. Or William Kniley. Whichever you prefer.

Please hold your excitement. Yes, I have finally updated this page. No, that does not mean that I will start updating it on a regular basis again. That just takes too much time, and besides, life has changed just a little since I was doing this on a regular basis.

The short story is that I'm now the year-round, part-time webmaster for Pocono Plateau. I may appear to be a pretty hardcore computer nerd to some people, but the reality is that the work I do for the Plateau is more than enough computer fun for me in a day, so the thought of maintaining this regularly doesn't exactly appeal to me.

There have been some other things that changed as well...but let's just say that I'm very happy where life is right now, and that life doesn't involve me sitting at the computer any more than is necessary. But never fear, I'm still checking my messages that all of you leave me. I'll be back from time to time with new pictures, and hopefully information about a big trip coming up soon.

So until then, enjoy the gallery and the archives, and hopefully I'll see you all in person at some point. Unless you're a weird stalker. Then I probably won't want to see you in person.

Jesus showed up.

That's the only way that I know how to describe the last few days of my life. I can't qualify it by how many people came. It can't be summarized by what worship bands were there. The number and quality of messages given would be an inadequate measure of the power of the assembly at OneDay03.

Instead, all I can say is that Jesus was there. As a result, a field overflowing with representatives of my generation had the ultimate privilege of meeting Him on that day. He worked in the hearts and minds off all who were present and open to Him. In some people, He made Himself known in a personal way for the first time. In others, He called them to a life of service to Him. In still others He confirmed the path on which they were walking - even if they weren't sure what that path was. And of course there was so much more.

"How was OneDay?" Amazing. Just to talk about the days events would make that clear. But in my life the largest lesson by far is that what happened on this past Monday was in no way an isolated incident. To relegate this to be just another "mountain top" experience is to belittle the power of the movement of the Lord on that day.

No, instead that day is simply another step in my journey with the Lord. It's not the best thing to happen in my life in a week/month/year/decade - it's one more breathtaking view along the narrow path that leads to Him. Yes, it was great, and even absolutely amazing, to gather on a field with tens of thousands of other college students and gather to worship the Lord. But it is even greater to know that I can have that exact same kind of intimate and life-changing communion with Him at any time of my life.

OneDay my life was awesome - Jesus showed up.
