Dear Glen Mar friends,
It’s November, a time of thanksgiving for God’s blessings and for the lives of our saints. I hope you will join us on Sunday for worship as we honor the people who have been saints for us and continue our series “Did the Bible Really Say That ?” with the phrase “God Won’t Give You More Than You Can Handle.” (You won’t want to miss it!).
As I was driving into Glen Mar this morning, I could hear, “Oh when the saints, go marching in, oh when the saints go marching in, oh how I want to be in that number, oh when the saints go marching in—go marching in” singing loudly in my head. I remembered as a child really punching in that last line, “go marching in.” At that point in my life, I did not really understand All Saints’ Day, but I knew my goal was to be a saint because I wanted to be “in that number.” It is still my goal: to be a part of the great crowd of witnesses. I think we all share that goal: to hear “well done my good and faithful servant.”
