Remembered in Love

Scripture: Revelation 21:1-6a

Speaker: Rev. Gus Christo-Baker

Life is not about me, about accumulating things—it’s about community. When one is suffering, we all share the pain. When one is rejoicing, we celebrate together. Today—All Saints Sunday—we remember and celebrate the lives of those who have gone before us. We remember the Saints of God whose witness transformed our lives.

November Series


November is a month of gratitude. On All Saints Sunday we remember and are grateful for those who have gone before us and helped to shape our lives. And on Veterans Sunday we remember those who have sacrificed and served in the armed forces. On Thanksgiving Sunday we of course give thanks for all the blessings in our lives. And on Christ the King Sunday we recognize that all glory and honor and power belong to Christ Jesus our King.

Reformation Sunday

Scripture: Job 42:1-6, 10-17

Speaker: Rev. Gus Christo-Baker

Today we observe Reformation Sunday recognizing the day Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the Wittenberg Church in 1517. This act is commemorated as the official starting point of the Protestant Reformation. Martin Luther did not call for a new church, but a renewed church. A renewed church follows a renewed faith, and a renewed faith leads to renewed passion for souls.
