February 1 is Saint Brigid’s feast day (the day when the church recognizes and celebrates her life). Brigid (also known as Brigid of Kildare) was an Irish woman who lived from 450 – 523 AD. She was well-known and well-endeared to people for her generous and hospitable spirit.
In today’s From the Touchline episode, Rev Brad looks at the life of Brigid as an example for us today. Whether you are a footballer, a coach or manager, owner or team executive — Brigid’s example can serve as a great starting point for considering how we open our hearts and hands to people in need.
