For Your Devotions:

Wednesday, October 23rd is the memorial of James of Jerusalem. There are a few by the name of James in the New Testament. This one is the brother of Jesus. Despite his earlier misgivings about Jesus’ ministry, James became hugely important to the young Christian Church and was martyred in about 62 AD for confessing his faith in Jesus as the Messiah. He was thrown off one of the parapets of the Temple and then stoned to finish the job. His martyrdom made it into historical accounts other than the Bible! For more information, go to p.314 here:

Saturday, October 26th is the commemoration of Alfred the Great, King of the West Saxons, died 899Alfred had wanted to become a monk but, with the successive deaths of the heirs to the throne ahead of him, he became king of the Anglo-Saxons in Britain instead. After defeating the invading Danish army, Alfred made a deal with their leader – “swear allegiance to Christ and be baptized and I’ll let you keep some land.”  Deal!  Alfred turned his efforts to repairing the cultural damage done to his people by the ravages of war and is the only English monarch to be called, “Great.”  For more info…

Hope you have a fantastic week!
