morning bell: become as saints


This series of Morning Bell become as saints marks the festival of All Saints. In this season we honour those widely recognised as great saints of the Jesus tradition. Equally importantly we remember all those who have sought to follow the Christ in the past and all who continue to do so now – the great body of saints present in every generation and almost every place. We are part of a huge family. You and I are saints! The challenge may be to accept that reality – and then to live it out – to become as saints…

morning bell; become as saints

The text for the series has emerged from my own reflections on the idea of saints, with particular reference to the New Testament. The photos for this series have all been taken this Autumn on a stretch of coastline in the South Hams.

Saints, as you engage each day with Morning Bell may you blessed and encouraged to continue your journey with the Christ.

Grace and peace to you
