All Saints

by | Oct 28, 2020 | All Saints Sunday

Sunday, we honor the saints who have gone before us in the faith. This includes saints of old and saints in the past few months or years. Saint is not an exclusive word in the scriptures, but an inclusive term as Paul used it. It meant all the followers of Jesus Christ.

What are some of the saints you have experienced in your own faith journey? Are there clergy that you can name that made a difference in your life? Can you name Sunday School teachers or UMYF leaders that formed you?  There may even be those quiet folks who make a lasting impact on others.

Our boys remember an usher at one church I served who always had a pack of gum for the children as they came into the sanctuary. There have always been those that have gone above and beyond in giving of themselves for the sake of the gospel. 

I invite you to reflect on the names of your saints and their deeds. Give thanks to God for the gift of them in your life.  And then think about your own legacy of faith. One simple gift you can leave your church is a bequest in your will.
