We all struggle to find the place where we belong. Christians have a place of belonging. We belong to God.
This Sunday at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, we are celebrating that no matter where we are in life, we can be transformed by God. Just as the God made the dry bones to live in Ezekiel 37, so we can have new life.
Christians everywhere celebrate All Saints Day. No matter what your preferred music style, let us celebrate that we will be with marching in when we join the church triumphant.
