All Saints’ Sunday 

 Gathered In To Be Called Out

Pentecost begins with a rush–the rushing, life-giving wind of God’s Spirit. Now the latter part of the season of Pentecost centers on the lush green of growth and glorious yellow of harvest. We are constantly reminded that God has inexorably linked the experience of grace to the life and work of human beings.  It is ordinary for the community of faith to be about the work of God’s reign.  It is extraordinary that this labor bears the very power of the cross and resurrection.  This part of the Pentecost season pushes us to see our work as sacramental, an incarnational expression of Christ’s own life, death, and resurrection.


We remember our baptisms, confess our faithlessness, 

and hear God’s faithful promise of forgiveness

Pastor: In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

People: Amen.

Pastor: Before God, our rock, our refuge, and our dwelling place,

let us confess our sin.

Silence for reflection and self-examination.

Most Holy and Most Merciful God,

People: you know our failings better than we do.

Some of our sins we know —

the thoughts and words and deeds

against our sisters and brothers.

We are more ready to be forgiven than to forgive others.

Turn us again toward you and toward others.

Guide us again to the water of life,

and renew in us the grace of baptism,

that we may live for you and die in you,

for the sake and in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord.  Amen.

Pastor: You are all children of God.

In the mercy of almighty God,

Jesus Christ was given to die for you,

and through Christ God forgives you all your sin.

With all the faithful in heaven and on earth,

rejoice and be glad,

your sins are forgiven!

People: Amen.




Pastor: The grace given to us in Christ Jesus,                                                                          the rich presence of the Holy Spirit living in us,                                                      and the power of God who calls us with a holy calling be with you all.

People: And also with you.


Almighty God, you have knit your people together in one communion in the mystical body of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.  Grant us grace to follow your blessed saints in lives of faith and commitment, and to know the inexpressible joys you have prepared for those who love you, through Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.  Amen.

First Reading

Daniel 7:1-3, 15-18

In the first year of King Belshazzar of Babylon, Daniel had a dream and visions of his head as he lay in bed. Then he wrote down the dream: I, Daniel, saw in my vision by night the four winds of heaven stirring up the great sea, and four great beasts came up out of the sea, different from one another. 

As for me, Daniel, my spirit was troubled within me, and the visions of my head terrified me. I approached one of the attendants to ask him the truth concerning all this. So he said that he would disclose to me the interpretation of the matter: ‘As for these four great beasts, four kings shall arise out of the earth. But the holy ones of the Most High shall receive the kingdom and possess the kingdom for ever—for ever and ever.’ 

Second Reading                                                                                              

Ephesians 1:11-23                                                                                                     

In Christ we have also obtained an inheritance, having been destined according to the purpose of him who accomplishes all things according to his counsel and will, so that we, who were the first to set our hope on Christ, might live for the praise of his glory. In him you also, when you had heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and had believed in him, were marked with the seal of the promised Holy Spirit; this is the pledge of our inheritance towards redemption as God’s own people, to the praise of his glory. 

I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love towards all the saints, and for this reason I do not cease to give thanks for you as I remember you in my prayers. I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know him, so that, with the eyes of your heart enlightened, you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance among the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power for us who believe, according to the working of his great power. God put this power to work in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the age to come. And he has put all things under his feet and has made him the head over all things for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all. 

Gospel Reading                                                                                                Luke 6:20-31                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Then he looked up at his disciples and said:
‘Blessed are you who are poor,
   for yours is the kingdom of God.
‘Blessed are you who are hungry now,
   for you will be filled.
‘Blessed are you who weep now,
   for you will laugh. 

‘Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude you, revile you, and defame you on account of the Son of Man. Rejoice on that day and leap for joy, for surely your reward is great in heaven; for that is what their ancestors did to the prophets.
‘But woe to you who are rich,
   for you have received your consolation.
‘Woe to you who are full now,
   for you will be hungry.
‘Woe to you who are laughing now,
   for you will mourn and weep. 

‘Woe to you when all speak well of you, for that is what their ancestors did to the false prophets. 

‘But I say to you that listen, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. If anyone strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also; and from anyone who takes away your coat do not withhold even your shirt. Give to everyone who begs from you; and if anyone takes away your goods, do not ask for them again. Do to others as you would have them do to you.

“When We Are Living”

[click on the link below]

NICENE CREED  (recited on festival Sundays)

Pastor: Let us confess our faith in the words of the Nicene Creed.

All: We believe in one God,

the Father, the Almighty,

maker of heaven and earth,

of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,

the only Son of God,

eternally begotten of the Father,

God from God, Light from Light,

true God from true God,

begotten, not made,

of one Being with the Father.

Through him all things were made.

For us and for our salvation

he came down from heaven;

was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary 

and became truly human.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;

he suffered death and was buried.

On the third day he rose again

    in accordance with the Scriptures;

he ascended into heaven

    and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,

and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,

who proceeds from the Father and the Son.

who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified.

who has spoken through the prophets.

We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.

We acknowledge one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins.

We look for the resurrection of the dead,

and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Remembering and Honouring All the Saints

Pastor:The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of   the Holy Spirit be with you all!

People: And also with you!

Pastor: Let us pray together.  Lord God, by your grace we are running a race.

People: We are surrounded by a cloud of witnesses–

Pastor:Patriarchs and matriarchs, prophets and psalmists, disciples and     evangelists, martyrs and saints.

People: We thank you for their example. We praise you for their lives of faith.    For all your saints, O Lord, who strove in you to live, who followed,       obeyed, adored you – our grateful hymn we sing.

Pastor:Lord God, by your grace we are running a race.

People: We are surrounded by a cloud of witnesses–

Pastor:Loved ones now resting in you, who guided us, nurtured and cared for     us; ancestors who worked and traveled, lived and died that we might be   who we are, where we are–your precious children in this community of   believers.

People: We thank you for their example. We praise you for their lives of faith.    For all your saints, O Lord, who strove in you to die, who counted you    their great reward – accept our thankful cry.

Pastor:Lord God, by your grace we are running a race.

People: We are surrounded by a cloud of witnesses–

Pastor:Family members and members of this congregation; fellow believers in     every country, every denomination; friends who help, guide and uplift     us– children of your family, sheep of your fold, saints of your       redeeming.

People: We thank you for their example. We praise you for their lives of faith.    For this, your name we bless, and humbly pray anew, that we like       them in holiness may live and die in you.

Pastor:Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let     us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely,

People: and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us,

Pastor:looking to Christ, the pioneer and perfecter of our faith.

People: Amen.

Pastor:  Let us pray:                                                                                                 Almighty God,
your people of all the ages live and praise you without ceasing.
In our communion with you, we have communion
with generations past and generations yet unborn.
Before your presence we are one
with a great multitude which no one could number,
and in praising you we join with those from every nation. 

Grant to your church on earth
that as we celebrate the triumph of your saints in glory
we may profit by their example
and enter with them into the inexpressible joys
you have prepared for those who love you,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

People:  Amen.

Pastor:  We praise you, O God, and we especially honor the memory of those      individuals of this congregation, their families, loved ones, and friends,    who have lived among us and shared their faith in personal ways, who      have finished the race and now reign on high with you.  In addition O      God, we honor the memory of those who have graced our lives at other   times and in other ways – those whose names we lift up before you     now.  In particular, we lift up before you with gratitude and      thanksgiving….

Pastor:  God of life, we give you thanks for all those people, so very dear to us,       whose loving presence here on earth is no more, yet who live a larger      life hidden in Christ.  O God of living love, from whom neither life nor     death can separate those who trust in your love, and whose gentle     power holds in its embrace your children both in this world and the next,   so unite us to yourself that in fellowship with you we may always be     united with our loved ones, whether here or there.  Give us courage,   constancy and hope; through him who died and was buried and rose   again for us, Jesus Christ our Lord.

People:  Amen

 [The congregational response after each petition is:“CAUSE YOUR FRUITS OF LOVE TO ABOUND.”]

Pastor:  With confidence in God’s saving grace, let us pray to the Lord of the Harvest for the Church, the world, and the needs of all people everywhere, saying, “God, in your goodness,” and responding, “Cause your fruits of love to abound.”

Petitioner:  Loving God, through the water of our baptism, through the nourishing food of your Supper, and through the power of your Word, you conform us to Christ and call us into the world for faithful service.  Bless the poor, the meek, the merciful, and the persecuted.  Make us pure of heart, transparent in our love for one another.  We thank and praise you for the faithful witness of all your saints, especially those who have died in this past year.  Help us to be faithful to you and give us the courage that we might live out our baptism as saints in the world.  God, in your goodness…

Petitioner:   Faithful God, the earth is yours and all that is in it.  Nourish the earth and renew farmland that now lies fallow.  Provide enough food and clean water for all that even barren wastelands can sustain life as you continue to bring new life out of death.   Fill all who hunger and thirst with good things, that we and your whole creation may be blessed.  God, in your goodness…

Petitioner:  God of reconciliation, we pray for this community of faith and all its ministers and ministries.  Bring your Word of Life to all who are struggling with situations that appear overwhelming, hopeless, and bound by death. Turn our woes into blessing; enable us to see, hear, taste, and feel your presence in the midst of our trials. Help us remember that your word of resurrection is the last and lasting word.   God, in your goodness …

Pastor:   God of healing, tenderly care for those in need of your hope and comfort: the sick, the desperate, the anxious, the depressed, for those who face constant pain or even death, for those in treatment for addiction or disease, and for those who mourn.  We remember especially before you ….  Wipe away the tears from their eyes. Give your shelter of compassion to all who call upon your name.   God, in your goodness…

Petitioner:  God of life everlasting, confound our ways of self-serving behaviour.  Stir us to advocate for and to serve those forgotten saints who are cast aside by the world and who are most in need of care.  Encourage partnerships among the people of faith to support food banks, clothing closets, homeless shelters, and ministries that lift up people who feel less than whole in any way.   God, in your goodness …

Petitioner:  God of justice and wisdom, we remember all who have served and those who have died in war and conflict.  Help us be mindful of the sacrifices they made and  the hardship endured by their families and friends.  Give us a vision of life in which justice and peace are not distant dreams, but a present reality.  Sustain the efforts of all, past and present, that we might create a world where swords are beaten into plowshares and there shall be no more war.  God, in your goodness…  

Petitioner:  Sustaining God, we pray for your Spirit  as we count our days together in this assembly.  Give us the vitality to continue to dream dreams, sing new songs, and be a sign of your living presence in the world.  Help us live well with one another, to value the gifts of all people, to be a blessing to one another, choosing to live in faith and hope, knowing that all things are possible with you. God, in your goodness…

Pastor: Teach us to pray, O God, and grant us wisdom in our asking, in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.

People:  Amen.


Pastor: The peace of Christ be with you always.

People: And also with you.

(The congregation greets one another with a gesture of peace, using these or similar words:
“Christ’s peace be with you.”)


(We worship God with the offering of our selves, our time, our talents, and our possessions.)


Pastor:: Let us pray.
God of harvest,

People: to your table we bring wine and bread,

and gifts from the labor of our hands.

Receive the offering of our lives,

and feed us with your living bread from heaven,

that our lives may proclaim your care for all creation,

and that we may serve others in your name;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.


Pastor: Let us pray with confidence in the words our Saviour gave us:

People: Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name,

your kingdom come,

your will be done,

  on earth as in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our sins

as we forgive those

  who sin against us.

Save us from the time of trial

and deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power,

and the glory are yours,

now and forever. Amen.


Pastor: Almighty God, 

who makes all things new in Jesus Christ,

uphold you by the Spirit in times of trial, 

and give you peace, now, and always.

People: Amen.
