But lo! there breaks a yet more glorious day;
The saints triumphant rise in bright array;
The King of glory passes on His way.
William W. How, 1864
from the hymn, For All the Saints
All Saints Sunday, November 5th, is a special time in the church year to remember those we have loved who have become a part of the “church triumphant.” It is an occasion to reflect on the shining promise of Christ’s everlasting life against the background of nearing winter darkness. During our All Saints worship service the names of those who have died in the past year will be read as candles are lit and the bell is rung.
As a part of this annual celebration, the Endowment Fund is inviting the friends and members of Lake of the Isles Lutheran Church to honor and memorialize “the living saints” and “the saints in light” with a gift to the Endowment Fund. This year, those whose names are memorialized with a financial gift will be included on the Sunday morning worship bulletin for All Saints, and with a flower in a special floral arrangement.
Consider the places that have been dear to you, and the people who have made a special mark on you, and honor their memory with your gift.
Peace, Pastor Arden Haug
