|"Dancing Saints" at Saint Gregory of Nyssa, San Francisco|
Thursday marked the feast of All Saints, observed by many throughout the Christian world. And many of us will observe this feast in our churches come Sunday. As a Catholic schoolgirl, I certainly had one very specific idea of what constituted a 'saint.' As a woman in her prime (ahem!) who also happens to be a Presbyterian minister... I have other thoughts!
How about you? Let's talk today about saints, how we have understood them throughout our lives. Who inspires us? Who challenges us? Whose lives have stirred us to greater discipleship? Who just has the best story we've ever heard? Try to answer these questions in each of the following categories:
1. Saints of the Bible.
2. Saints from Church History/ World History.
3. Saints from Our Own Lives.
4. Saints from Pop Culture
5. Saints Absolutely No One Else in the World Would Ever Call Saints.
