Greetings in the name of the Lord.

Fifth Sunday’s are a time of Good food and favorite hymns. To me it feels like a family time and a family gathering. Fellowship around the table is an important part of church life.

This coming Sunday we will again have fellowship around a different table, the Lords table, when we gather to celebrate the Lord’s Supper. This is also important in the life of the church. It gathers us together and strengthens us for the days ahead. The forgiveness and grace from God that we receive strengthen our lives in Christ.

This Sunday we will be celebrating All Saint’s Sunday. Together we will be remembering those members of our congregation who went to be with the Lord in this past year. It is also a time to remember the saints in our lives who helped us to understand our relationship to the Lord. They are gone, but never forgotten.

Have a blessed week.
