All Saints Sunday
Sermon: Actions Speak Louder Than Words
Together, we celebrated communion and remembered with love and gratitude those saints who have gone before us. We shared this time of worship with those saints who testified to the Lord with their lives and now from their labors rest. We studied Luke 6: 17-26 and specifically looked at the actions of Jesus in this text. We worked together to be good students of Jesus.
Our takeaways were to:
- Read Week 45 of Coast to Coast readings.
- CONNECT with all the saints who have gone before us through remembrance and communion.
- DISCOVER the lessons of Jesus’ actions.
- SERVE the level places.
- Pray for God’s peace to comfort all who mourn and live with the pain of grief.
“O blest communion, fellowship divine, we feebly struggle, they in glory shine;
yet all are one in thee, for all are thine. Alleluia! Alleluia!”
