The Communion of the Saints

This is All Saints Sunday when we remember those who have gone before us. As we continue our study of Mark’s gospel, in today’s passage Jesus is asked by a scribe, a scholar of the scriptures, which commandment is first. Jesus replies with a first and second commandment, the familiar ones taken from Deuteronomy and Leviticus, to love God and to love one’s neighbor. The scribe, realizing that Jesus has answered well, begins to understand the depth of Jesus’ grasp of faith. When we think about those saints today, we can recite how each has lived out those commandments to love God and one’s neighbor, and we stand next in line. (NOTE: Although the video begins with the Children’s Moment and sermon, once it starts you can scroll back to the beginning of the service if you want. The video of the entire service is available to watch.)
