Celebrating All Saints Day

November 3, 2021 by Beth A. Richardson

In these years of pandemic, many throughout the world have lost loved ones from a distance. Our beloveds have died without us having had the chance to hold their hand, share last words, or sit by their bedside as they die. Family members have not been able to travel to be with other family and friends. Memorial services have, for the most part, been virtual—no potlucks, wakes, or gathering around the grieving. The loss of our rituals on top of the loss of our loved ones—loss building upon loss.

As we prepare for All Saints Day, November 1, 2021, I invite you to spend some time considering the saints, living and dead, who have guided, nurtured, and shaped you. Especially if you have lost a beloved one in this past year, join us for an All Saints service from The Upper Room Chapel on Wednesday, November 3, 11:00 a.m. (Central Time). Pray with us on this page below, on Facebook, or on YouTube

Beth A. Richardson serves as the director of prayer and worship life and Dean of The Upper Room Chapel.

The worship, preaching, and teaching for The Upper Room’s RESILIENCE conference was among the best I have ever experienced. The event was extremely well organized and went so smoothly. The Upper Room continues to make so much impact on people around the world.”
