Plan of Salvation _________________

Tell others about Jesus like Cuthbert did:

Though not all Christians are called to the ministry of an Evangelist, we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). _________________

England's Beloved and Patron Saint: Missionary to the Pagan Angles (Early English People)

He didn't want to become a Bishop, but leadership was thrust upon him.

Cuthbert went on to become the one considered by many to be the greatest English saint.  He traveled the region to preach before spending nine years as a hermit on the island of Inner Farne.  

The program visits authentic locations to follow Cuthbert's life and the journey of the monks who fled with Cuthbert's remains to escape the Vikings.  

After a time at Lindisfarne, Cuthbert's body was moved to the mainland and eventually entombed at Durham where the magnificent Norman Cathedral was built over him.  (-from the Video's Back Cover). ______________________________

Our Comments:

"Cuthbert, though he may not have been ethnically Celtic, was inspired to become a Monk at the time of the death of Aidan.  He was trained in the Celtic tradition at Melrose Abby in Northumbria.  

Cuthbert was a man of prayer, spending nine years living as a religious hermit on the small Island of Inner Farne near Lindisfarne.  

He had the Celtic Monks' love of nature and animals, and is considered the first Conservationist: protecting and saving the Eider Duck from extinction.  

He held the Celtic view of what the role of Bishop should be: a Missionary Bishop in the tradition of St. Patrick; an Evangelist like the Apostles!   

As Bishop of Lindisfarne, Cuthbert preached to the pagan Angles (early English) of Northumbria and northern England, bringing many to Christ.  

He finally returned to his beloved hermitage where he lived for only a year more, before going home to be with the Lord at the age of only 53."
