All Saints Sunday

 

 

9:00am Sunday School

10:00am Morning Worship with Holy Communion

 

 

INTRODUCTION

 

All Saints celebrates the baptized people of God, living and dead, who are the body of Christ. As November heralds the dying of the landscape in many northern regions, the readings and liturgy call us to remember all who have died in Christ and whose baptism is complete. At the Lord's table we gather with the faithful of every time and place, trusting that the promises of God will be fulfilled and that all tears will be wiped away in the new Jerusalem.

 

Readings

 

Revelation 7:9–17

Psalm 34:1–10, 22 Fear the LORD, you saints of the LORD; for those who fear the LORD lack nothing. (Ps. 34:9)

1 John 3:1–3

Matthew 5:1–12

 

Prayer of the Day

 

Almighty God, you have knit your people together in one communion in the mystical body of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Grant us grace to follow your blessed saints in lives of faith and commitment, and to know the inexpressible joys you have prepared for those who love you, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

Twenty-second Sunday after Pentecost

 

9:00am Sunday School

10:00am Morning Worship with Holy Communion

 

 

INTRODUCTION

 

Today the prophet Amos calls for justice to roll down like waters. Paul urges us to encourage one another with the promised coming of the Lord. Jesus tells the parable of the wise and foolish bridesmaids. Surrounded by the faithful of every time and place, we celebrate Christ's coming in our midst in the word of life and the feast of victory—the marriage feast of the lamb.

 

 

Readings

 

Amos 5:18–24

Psalm 70  You are my helper and my deliverer; O LORD, do not tarry. (Ps. 70:5)

1 Thessalonians 4:13–18

Matthew 25:1–13

 

 

Prayer of the Day

 

O God of justice and love,

you illumine our way through life with the words of your Son.

Give us the light we need,

and awaken us to the needs of others,

through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.
