For All the Saints!

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.

Embracing Emergence Christianity - The Church's Next Rummage Sale

Every time Carol and I have moved to a different house, we have gone through the process of sorting through boxes, piles, and drawers of "stuff" to determine what needs to move and what can be sold in a garage sale or given away. This is not a process that I look forward to or get excited
 
about, but it is one that I find fulfilling and freeing once it is completed. "De-cluttering" has become a national phenomenon. All you have to do is google it and you get multiple lists of books written to help us cope with getting rid of stuff. Some of the questions offered include: Do I need this? Am I holding on to this because it has a significant memory? Can someone else use it? Am I keeping it because I think I should love it? I think these are good questions and they can be applied to the ways we hold on to physical stuff and even to the ways we hold on to old ways of thinking.
