All the saints

The paper chain
is not a forgotten Christmas decoration
but a living reminder
of the family of God
past and present 
visible and out of sight.
The saints who have gone before us
and those who still mentor us
in our everyday.
The colours speak of the vibrancy of their witness
and pay tribute to the vitality
of their influence on us
who seek to be saints
for our day.
not because of our goodness
or our giftedness
but saints
because God declares us so.
And so we fluff up our wings
and polish up our halos
and walk tall
in the power of God
forging ever more links 
in that living chain.
