Thanks be to God for all the saints! As we remember those who rest from their labors and those we miss so very much, here is a song to listen to. It’s by Carrie Newcomer, a Quaker songwriter and folksinger. Here are some of the lyrics:
there’s a gathering of spirits
there’s a festival of friends
and we’ll take up where we left off
when we all meet again.
just east of eden
but there’s heaven in our midst
and we’re never really all that far
from those we love and miss
wade out in the water
there’s a glory all around
and the wisest say there’s a 1000 ways
to kneel and kiss the ground
Peace be with you this day and every day!
