After reading this article about a woman who lost her husband, her friends, and her hair I said, to nobody in particular, “This lady needs a church.”
By that, I don’t mean she needs to visit her local sanctuary this Sunday. She doesn’t need to sign a pledge card or join a committee. She needs a church. More specifically (and theologically true) she needs for somebody to be her church.
So, on this All Saints Day – one of my favorite days of the year – be a saint to someone who needs the church . . . which would be all of us. In spite of all this business, scripture calls anyone who follows Jesus a saint. Let’s be that today.
