” Saints Among Us”

 {Numbers 11:16}

I’d written a sermon years ago about saints & prophets.

Our Church recogizes many saints  in our  calendar but Bishop Katharine challenges us to discover the  living ” saints” in the communiity where we llive, work, worship & play. 

She says” …there are plenty of prophets out there &  they’re busy speaking for the LORD….Each one speaks for God in the camp where he or she labors, as well as in the Sunday tent of meeting.”

  Most of the time the wisdom of these everyday prophets goes unrecognized, as did the  messeges of the Old Testement prophets.  We learned in Year One of EfM that  generally, prophets are  not popular with their contemporaries.  But perhaps this is intentional , as we also learned in EFM that God chose the prophets of ancient times  from individuals who, for the most part, were not up to the task of being God’s mouthpiece.

Who are the living “saints” in your parish, workplace, social club, or other area of daily life?
