Thanks Carlton,

That does seem to broaden the scope of meaning then describing someone with 
the grace ANTILHYIS. In your view could this describe someone in the 
congregation that could generally be able to move among the members; 
uplifting them...even inspiring them ? Would these abilities be able to be 
described by ANTILHYIS ? It would seem to me (logically) to be allowed, but 
is there anything in the "Greekness" of this word that would exclude that ?
