Celebrating All Saints 

October 31, 2017

All Saints Day originated sometime in the 4th Century and was originally celebrated on the first Sunday after Pentecost. During the 800’s the date of the celebration of All Saints Day was moved to November. All Saints Day is a time when the church honors those who died as witnesses of the Christian Faith. Today, in many of our churches, the names of deceased members from the past year are read during the service on All Saints Day. Those whom we celebrate on this All Saints Day are people who loved/love their God. They are a people whose strong faith is consistent with their behavior. We give thanks to God for their lives and sing our thanks with joyful voices.
