We're hoping to read and discuss literature that has not only stood the test of time but that would also appeal to this age group of boys. Please bring your classic book suggestion to the next  meeting so we can develop our reading schedule.  Please email to register.

Saints Bio: Forty Holy Martyrs

In the year 320, Constantine was Emperor of the West and Licinius of the East. Licinius, under pressure from Constantine, had agreed to legalize Christianity in his territory, and the two made an alliance cemented by the marriage of Licinius to Constantia the sister of Constantine; but then Licinius broke the alliance and made a new attempt to suppress Christianity. He ordered his soldiers to repudiate it on pain of death. In what was called the “Thundering Legion,” stationed near Sebaste in Armenia (Turkey), forty soldiers refused, and when promises, threats, and beatings failed to shake them, they were stripped naked one evening and herded onto the middle of a frozen lake, and told, “You may come ashore when you are ready to deny your faith.” To tempt them, fires were built on shore, with warm baths, blankets, clothing, and hot food and drink close by. As night deepened, thirty-nine men stood firm, while one broke and ran to the shore. However, one of the soldiers standing guard on shore was so moved by the steadfastness of the Christians that he stripped off his clothes and ran out to join them. They welcomed him into their company, and so the number of the martyrs remained at forty, and by morning, all were dead of exposure. One source says that the few in whom a little life remained were stabbed to death at dawn.

And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. Acts 2:42
