November's Wordsearch

This month Scotland remembers one of the very first disciples of Jesus.  St Andrew is honoured not for any mighty deeds of his own, but for his love of introducing people to Jesus.  He went straight off and introduced his brother Peter to the Saviour, and followed that up by bringing Nathanael/Bartholomew to Jesus. ‘Better Together’ seems to have been his slogan, too! ‘We have found the Messiah!’, he told them, unable to keep the good news to himself.  Andrew’s connection with Scotland dates back to the claimed translation of his remains from Patras in Achaia to Scotland in the eighth century. The church in Fife where these remains were buried became a place of pilgrimage during the tenth century. All of this may be no more than pious legend,  but that St Andrew was highly regarded in Scotland and became its patron saint is beyond doubt.
