Prayer diary Friday 26 Dec 2014 St Stephen's Day

Then they dragged him out of the city and began to stone him; and the witnesses laid their coats at the feet of a young man named Saul. 
 Acts 7. 58

Reflection
It may seem strange that our Church calender goes from celebrating the birth of Christ one day to the death of the first martyr the next. But it reminds us the child in the manger was born for the wood of the cross – and that we are all called to take up our own cross and give witness to Christ.
