Worship with One Click
You can choose to watch all of this Sunday's worship service in a series of linked videos, one after the other, by clicking this link. Just press the button that says "PLAY ALL" and sit back and relax. You can also just click on the graphic to the left. Otherwise, proceed as normal through the sections.
To know others have been before us, to remember that we are not alone in this work of being human, to know that God is with us is to begin to name the hope we have as children of the Just and Compassionate One.
So prepare for this day. Find a candle, or many and light them. Our preacher will invite us to do just that if you haven’t already. Give thanks for those who have led the way for us, mentored us, guarded and guided us, finished the race. And remember that you are doing the same for others. Be challenged and inspired. Look for the hope that surrounds us. Be that hope for others. Enter into worship.

By your Spirit, show us truth;
through Christ, the Living Word,
in whom we see your face. Amen.

*In the season after Pentecost (also known as Ordinary Time, or "Proper" Sundays, the first reading can follow one of two tracks—either a semi-continuous track that stays with a story over a number of Sundays or a paired track that companions more closely the gospel reading. This season we are mostly using the paired readings. Today we are using the All Saints reading.
Respond in Song
If you haven’t already, set the elements—some bread, some juice or wine—in the room or space where you worship in these days with our faith community. Set a table with things that remind you of hope in this world and the world to come—something that symbolizes hope for you, something that will last beyond you. And today a candle. White, to remember those who have come before us.
If a joy or a concern has come to mind, please share it with the assembly here so you do not carry it alone. These will be shared by email to our St Andrew prayer list so that we pray for what you hold by name. This information is emailed to a curated group, not shared or posted online in a searchable form.
