Good afternoon, Saints of God,
Today we had a wonderful opportunity to thank God for the lives of saints who have gone before us, and for saints who have joined us on the journey. We named those who were baptized at St. Matthew since last All Saints Sunday, as well as the members and friends of St. Matthew who entered the Church Triumphant since last All Saints Sunday. Beyond that, we had the opportunity to light candles to remember the baptismal promises made to other saints not named aloud, but still of importance to us in our life of faith.
For those not able to join us live, a link to the recording of the 10:15 service is available here:
Thank you to our Property Committee for providing such a lovely coffee hour for us today. We eat well at St. Matthew! We are grateful for this opportunity for fellowship on this day when we rejoice in the fellowship of all the saints.
May you remember that you are blessed, because you have been made a saint of God through your baptism into Christ Jesus!
Pastor Karl Richard
