Saints are sinners who kept on going. ~ Robert Louis Stevenson
On Sunday, October 30th, we will celebrate All Saints Sunday during our morning worship, but our preparation will begin THIS SUNDAY, OCTOBER 23 and all are invited to participate. All Saints' Day invites us to look way back to the very early days of the Church and at people whose lives are an inspiration for us. It also invites us to remember those whom we love who have left us on this earth. It calls us to notice those in our midst who show us a brighter way to live. In some mysterious way we will gather with all those who have gone before, with those we love who live in different parts of the world, as well as with those in the room with us. From the earliest days, the church has taken this opportunity to celebrate and we are invited to join in the celebration.
