All Saints Sunday can be a glorious celebration of the body of Christ in your local context. There is no church like yours, no collection of gifts and graces, no accumulation of wisdom and experience, no place of joy and sorrow exactly like your congregation. This is a time to celebrate who you are in Christ.
Three weeks before the end of the liturgical year, and we turn to gratitude as the guiding theme for worship. What does a life of gratitude look like? Or perhaps more importantly, what does it feel like?
If the Sunday before Thanksgiving invited us to look at the community and the family that surrounds us, this Sunday encourages us to look up to the Christ as we give thanks for the kingdom he asks us to see and to lean into.
