Good morning New Street Family,
Today is All Saints Sunday. It is an opportunity to give thanks for those who have gone before us in the faith. In our faith we too, like Mary and Martha Martha accompanied with distress over the loss of their loved one, Lazarus, obeyed the commands of Christ. Even Lazarus, though he was dead, obeyed the commands of Christ. In doing so, we can be all that God has created to be, just as our Saint's have done.
Our special music is performed by our own Chancel Choir singing “Song of Saints”. The closing song is "God Be with You Till We Meet Again".
God of new beginnings, remove the shroud that separates us from one another and from your mighty presence, that we may see you as you are. Wipe away our tears and take away our disgrace that we may come before your throne with hearts full of song and souls ablaze with joy. Help us to live as those who are prepared to die, and enable us to die as those who go forth to live, so that whether living or dying, our hearts will always belong to you. Amen.
“I heard a loud voice from the throne say, ‘Look! God’s dwelling is here with humankind. He will dwell with them, and they will be his peoples. God himself will be with them as their God.’” Revelation 21:3(CEB)
