One of my favorite Sundays of the Christian calendar is All Saints Sunday. The Sunday of or following All Saints Day is an important day in the life of the local congregation and the connection we call Methodism.
"All Saints Day is an opportunity to give thanks for all those who have gone before us in the faith."
See the link provided here for more information:
I give thanks and remember many persons from the Methodist congregations across the former Southwest Texas Annual Conference and now Rio Texas Annual Conference. I am connected with them in the way in which I was spiritually formed and nurtured in faith while observing the witness of the faithful ahead of me.
November 3, I will hang bells on the cross at Hunt UMC in honor of some of the saints in my life. I hope you do likewise wherever you worship this Sunday.
Along the Way
