Pastor Tim’s October Message

 

Cloud of Witnesses | Emmanuel Lutheran Church Bremerton
All Saints’ Sunday will be observed on November 6 this year.  It is a time to remember God’s Saints who have completed their labors and gone on before us. In our family we remember Carolyn’s parents, Roger and Nell, and my Father, Andrew.  Carolyn remembers her brother, Roger Jr., and we both thank God for aunts and uncles.

 

In Church on November 6 we will give each person a white, cloud-shaped paper to record the names of their loved ones who have gone on before them.  Hebrews 12 calls these saints a “cloud of witnesses.”  We will read each name and toll the bell for them.

It is our belief that their faithful witness inspires fidelity in our hearts and lives.  For two weeks I will share stories of obedient saints who by their lives modeled God’s way for us.

See you then.
Pastor Tim Cartwright
