November 25 – All Saints Day

November 25 – All Saints Day

We are celebrating All Saints Day!   Yes, you may say it was early in the month, and you would be correct.  However, this is when we were able to celebrate this day.

SCRIPTURE    Hebrews 11:1, 8-13, 39-40; 12:1-4  read by Barbara Temple

REFLECTION    Rev. Dr. Alan Minarcik, and joined by Ken Estabrooks, Jeannine VanderBeek and Gayle Schaming.  Each spoke of the person who they feel is remembered or acknowledged by them as ‘a Saint’.  Enjoy hearing their stories.

Music today was provided by Kimberly Hanmer.  She opened with a beautiful flute solo from our balcony.  Her piano solo during the offering was mesmerizing, soothing, very spiritual and just so beautifully played by her.  You may enjoy listening on the link below.  Hymns included:  “For all the Saints”;  ‘I, the Lord of Sea and Sky’;  ‘Shall We Gather At the River’; and ‘When the Saints’
