On All Saints’ Day -
November 1, 1995,
I had the privilege to worship
at St. Paul’s Anglican Church in
Cape Town, South Africa.
I had talked about All Saints’ Day
on a number of occasions before.
I have deep appreciation for
the Communion of Saints.
It is an important and profound
dimension of my faith.
Still, this was the first All Saints’ Day
service I ever attended.
It included the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper
and led me to write these brief words:
Bread is broken,
wine is poured,
and all in Christ
For all the saints, thanks be!
