All Saints Sunday Worship In-person & via Zoom
November 7 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am
All Saints Sunday
Of all three years of the lectionary cycle, this year’s All Saints readings have the most tears. Isaiah and Revelation look forward to the day when God will wipe away all tears; in John’s gospel, Jesus weeps along with Mary and all the gathered mourners before he demonstrates his power over death. On All Saints Day we celebrate the victory won for all the faithful dead, but we grieve for our beloved dead as well, knowing that God honors our tears. We bring our grief to the table and find there a foretaste of Isaiah’s feast to come.
Join us for worship and fellowship to follow!
The service will begin at 10:30, but plan to enjoy the prelude which begins at 10:20 a.m.
