For All The Saints

Dear Friends,

Let’s take a break from prewritten devotions this week and instead, spend some time interacting.  This Sunday is All Saints Sunday, a time to celebrate those in our lives who have shined the light of Christ.  Who will you be remembering on November 7th, and why?  Share a brief note in the comment, please.

Prayer for All Saints Sunday

Almighty God, you have knit your people together in one communion, in the mystical body of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.  Grant us grace to follow your blessed saints in lives of faith and commitment, and to know the inexpressible joys you have prepared for those who love you, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.  Amen.

One thought on “For All The Saints

  1. I will be remembering my grandmother, Mary. She died earlier this year at the age of 98. Mary was a rare woman of her generation; highly educated with a distinguished professional career, she encouraged my studies and held all of her grandchildren to a high standard. But more importantly, she, and her husband, my grandpa Gerald (who died several years ago) were my baptismal sponsors. Most of my fond memories of church in high school are of she and I, and the rest of our family, standing shoulder-to-shoulder, in the same pew, holding our hymnals and worshiping together.
