    Share the goooood-talk of everyday saints

    I invite you to join me in this new year's dreamy space of the "everyday saint," deliberately in lowercase to emphasize its humble yet authentic essence, aligning with the Reformed spirit of the "priesthood of all believers" embodied in sainthood. [...] they could be friends like your next-door neighbor, presently engaged in serving God and their neighbors in your modest yet significant everyday space. Or they could be strangers you randomly ran into on the street who showed you mysterious kindness. [...] Share their stories with me. Let's spread the good news.
