ALL SAINTS: Surrounded by Saints!

My cousin's little saint Lorna who
now plays with Jesus all day!
It's a little too late for this year but I just remembered that at a church I went to a few years ago we all brought photos of family members and put them all around the sanctuary along with photos of church leaders like Luther and his reformation colleagues.  We had candles in the windowsills and either taped photos on the windows or set them on the sills as well.  It was so cool to be in worship surrounded by all our family members.

At one point in the service we also had an opportunity to say their names out loud.  The pastor paused and took a few moments for us to say the names of as many as we could remember.

It was incredible!
