Russell Moore posted his annual note about Patrick, evangelist to Ireland: An Evangelical Looks at Saint Patrick. I refuse to refer to him as "Saint Patrick" because every Christian is a saint and none of us are more or less deserving of that title than any other. Few things are more harmful than giving special titles of honor to some Christians. I am certain that Peter and Paul and Patrick would be horrified to have their names venerated with titles and attached to buildings in their honor.
Anyway, off my soapbox! Check out Russell Moore's post and remember all of the saints of God in your prayers today, those who lived in the first century, those who lived much later and especially those all around you today.
