Message: The communion of saints

This week's takeaway from church

For as long as the faith has existed,  Christians have had ‘Saints’. These are people who are admired for their faith, and treated as an example to follow. This includes people who got the ‘St’ in front of their name: St Francis, St Columba, St. Therese. It includes other heroes of the faith: Martin Luther King, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Julian of Norwich. And it also includes the ordinary people in our lives who will never be famous, but none the less inspire us. These people, even the capital ‘S’ Saints, were not perfect. Each of them had flaws, just like us. But even so their stories of faithfulness and courage can still inspire us.

Who inspires your faith?
