“What is a Living Saint?”
Dr. Tim Bruster
Last week we had a wonderful All Saints’ celebration, both during worship and in a beautiful All Saints’ concert on Sunday evening. As we honored the lives and legacies of those who have gone before us — and most particularly those who departed from this life during this past year — we paid tribute to those lives in a very special way.

Robert Stovall gives a quick preview of the music offering for this Sunday.

Unbounded Generosity is An Act of Christian Discipleship
Scripture: Philippians 2:1-11
Don’t do anything for selfish purposes, but with humility think of others as better than yourselves. Instead of each person watching out for their own good, watch out for what is better for others. Adopt the attitude that was in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 2:3-5) Read more.

Women and Children’s Shelter
On Sunday night, we took 54 youth and adult volunteers to the women and children’s shelter to serve dinner to the 40 families and 100 kids living there. If you have any natural inclination toward math, you may have already realized that we were perhaps overstaffed. Read more.
Why Choir Matters
OK, so Sunday was amazing. The kids sang with energy, enthusiasm, and spirit. Here is what they were singing: Come to God with a grateful heart, Ready to serve, and ready to praise. God made everything, all creatures great and small. God loves everyone, and God is Lord of all. Read more.

Sometimes We Need Questions Then Answers
People sometimes get bored with stories they’ve heard over and over because they’ve learned a way of hearing them that shuts out any imagination. The story says the same thing every time. That is a really unfortunate way to treat a good story. Read more.
A Big Messy Table . . .
Rev. Tom McDermott
Town slogans can say a lot about a community — Keep Austin Weird, Keep Fort Worth Funky. Marfa’s “unofficial” alliterative one says Keep Marfa Mysterious. You pass through Gas, Kansas, and can’t help but notice their big red water tower which boasts the slogan, “Don’t Pass Gas; Stop and Enjoy It.” Read more.
