Friends and neighbors invited to celebrate All Saints Day
All Saints Day (Nov. 1) and All Souls Day (Nov. 2) are annual reminders to remember, honor, and celebrate the dead.
The ritual of consciously remembering loved ones who have passed is an important spiritual practice in all our lives. It brings death into the context of our daily experience and reminds us that dying is not the end.
On Nov. 3, Edmonds Lutheran Church will celebrate All Saint’s Sunday, where we remember with joy those who have gone before us.
Those in the church who have died since last All Saints will be spoken of with faith and affection.
All of us who have lost loved ones and friends will be reminded that those dear ones continue to be part of us - that host of Saints who accompany us in our journeys.
Visitors and members alike are encouraged to bring pictures of the saints in their lives (both living and dead) to be placed around the communion table so that we can celebrate the communion of all the saints, delighting in God’s great mercy and rejoicing with them in glory.
The choir will sing a new liturgy by Aaron David Miller entitled “Behold the Saints In Glory” accompanied by a string ensemble, hand chimes, organ and guest trumpeter.
Traditional Worship is at 8:30 a.m. Celebration Worship is at 10:30 a.m.
Edmonds Lutheran Church is at 23525 84th Ave. W, Edmonds.
