Commemorations

A commemoration is a celebration of remembering, a time for solemnly acknowledging a significant person or event from our past.  Commemorating saints in the Christian faith is part of our heritage.  We are called to look to those who have gone ahead of us in maturity of faith and to learn from them (Hebrews 13:7).

This “column” highlights inspirational servants of God, not to condone or endorse every doctrine or statement or act, but to inspire us to realize what sacrificial service can do in this world.  We understand that any one good word or act is a comparative drop in the bucket to all the wrong in the world today, yet our collective drops do make a difference.  Here are some “saints”, historical and in the present, who have made and are still making a difference.

N.B.:  For the purposes of this website, “saint” shall mean any Christian (past, present, and future) who has trusted (or will trust) in the salvation of Jesus Christ and is being actively transformed into His likeness through the process of godly sanctification until that glorious Day when he or she  stands perfected in his or her redemption in the presence of our Triune Head.
