November 1 is All Saints’ Day, let's give thanks for the people in our lives who shape the family of God.
On All Saints’ Day, we remember the saints who came before us or walk alongside us in our churches, workplaces, or neighborhoods. Regardless of location, they help us experience God’s presence. With gratitude, we remember them, and today especially, we thank God for the ways they contribute to our spiritual growth.
The Upper Room gives thanks for our spiritual companions, those saints who sustain us on the journey—our friends, coworkers, donors, readers, program participants, and international partners. They help us encounter God and invite the world to do the same. As the family of God, we rejoice with all the saints in times of celebration, and we carry each other’s burdens in times of hardship.
This All Saints’ Day, consider a gift in honor or in memory of the saints who have shaped your faith journey. Your generosity will shape the spiritual life of people around the world.
