Think & Thank: All Saints Day

Friends,

On All Saints Day, it is customary to recall those saints of the church who came before us. For me, All Saints Day is an opportunity to reflect upon the many people who have positively contributed to my faith journey. I encourage you to think about the saints in your own life and thank God for their presence.

On this All Saints Day, I am remembering Norm Ellington. Norm changed the trajectory of my faith and spiritual journey. Click here to read an excerpt from a paper I wrote about him for a seminary class seven years ago.

Who are your saints? How did they contribute to who you are?
