Festivalis (Week 4)
May 29: Martyrs Notes / Podcast
On the last Monday of every may we celebrate Memorial Day here in America. A day on which we stop and remember those who lost their life serving our nation so that we might be free. The Christian Church also has a festival to remember those who lost their life serving their Lord. We call those individuals martyrs - “someone who was killed for their religious beliefs”. The Festival of Martyrs allows us to remember those who remained faithful to God even in the face of death and also to ask God to give to us a faith that is willing to stand up at all times no matter what the cost or loss.
