November 6, 2022 – Saints Who Have Gone Before (All Saints Day)
On this day we remember and give thanks to God for those in our church community who have died and now rest in the fullness of God’s Kingdom. Those who have gone before us now sit in the presence of God, in right relationship with the Father, as was originally intended.
15 For this reason they are before the throne of God
and worship him day and night within his temple,
and the one who is seated on the throne will shelter them.
16 They will hunger no more and thirst no more;
the sun will not strike them,
nor any scorching heat,
17 for the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd,
and he will guide them to springs of the water of life,
and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”
