St Paulinus

Today is the commemoration of St Paulinus. I was baptised in a church dedicted to Paulinus and my first school was St Paulinus. As a  boy I had visions of St Paulinus, bishop of Rochester, sailing up the river Cray to evangelise Orpington. Not vision visions, just nice thoughts and ideas. Where should we be sailing to speak the words of Jesus in the gospel?

  1. We should simply be sailing in our own lives, being Christ to those around us. I for one have a tendency to always be on the look out for some "greater mission" but that is wrong. This was the gentle reminder I needed tonight. DG.
