In honor of the feast day of The Great Martyr Saint George, we made dragon pancakes, read the story of his life, and talked about how we can be good soldiers for Christ too. We may not have any dragons to fight, but there is certainly a battle taking place, and St. George is a wonderful example of endurance, bravery, and great love. While the story of him slaying a dragon is what he's most known for, he endured terrible tortures at the hands of the pagan emperor Diocletian. By God's grace George remained steadfast in his love for Jesus, and witnessing this many others also professed faith in Christ, including Diocletian's wife, who was also martyred. Finally, seeing that George would not renounce his faith, he was beheaded on this day in the year 303 and received a crown of glory. This is one "superhero" that I feel very good about my son wanting to emulate!
