St. Phillip and St. James

Today in the Christian calendar is the day for St. Philip and St. James, the offensive lineman of the disciples. No one remembers their names or what they did. They were humble and did what Jesus asked them to do. I call them offensive lineman because nobody remembers an offensive lineman except when he misses a block.

I like the idea of a day for the offensive linemen. Men and women who go about serving God not for the glory, but for the service itself.
