All Saints’ Day, Year C
Scripture: Luke 6:20-26
Note: This is the lesson plan for All Saints Day/All Saints Sunday. Check with your clergy person about what propers you are using for this Sunday. Some churches use All Saints, others use the Sunday Propers. There is also an Intergenerational Lesson Plan for All Saints.
All Saints’ Day invites us to look way back to the very early days of the Church and at people whose lives are an inspiration for us. It also invites us to remember those whom we love that have gone on through the gates of larger life. It calls us to notice those in our midst who show us a brighter way to live. In some mysterious way we are gathered, now, with all those who have gone before, with those we love who live in different parts of the world, as well as with those in the room with us. From the earliest days, the church has taken this opportunity to celebrate and we are invited to join in the celebration.
