*Call to Worship

One: We remember, O God… 
All: The countless saints of history who have blazed a trail of courage through time, 
One: We remember, O God… 
All: The tender touch of loved ones, 

the example of heroes, 

the healing words of comforters, 

the remarkable acts of fearless ones. 
One: We remember, O God… 
All: The gentle strength of grandmothers, 

the loyalty of friends, 

the kindness of strangers, 

the joy of children, 

the sacrifice of parents. 

One: We remember, O God… 
All: The supreme love of Jesus, 

the blessing of his Spirit, 

the reminder of his words, 

the sharing of his suffering, 

the glory of his resurrection: 

shown forth in the lives of his disciples, 

             young and old, dead and living, 

            articulate and silent, strange and familiar, 

            brilliant and ordinary. 
One: We remember in every time and place the saints of God 

who have shown us the Lord. 
All: Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses…

let us worship God with joy!

God of love and uncountable blessings, we bring our gifts this day in the sight of our cloud of witnesses — the saints who have guided our lives and watch over our faithfulness from heaven’s balcony. As we strive to live out their hope and faith in the promise of your kingdom, may we also rededicate ourselves to live so this world better reflects your kingdom and rule. In Christ, we pray. Amen.
