"We are surrounded by witnesses. We are upheld and reminded of the goodness of God by these great witnesses of the faith throughout the centuries. The feast day of All Saints matters because the church is established by the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. It matters because it is an incredible reminder that we are not alone. We are surrounded by the church throughout the world and throughout time. And it reminds us that people have walked this path before us, whose example we can follow."
As the diocesan office prepares for our annual Convention this Saturday, Bishop Alex takes a moment to reflect on the significance of the feast day of All Saints on November 1, which commemorates the result of Jesus' life—the reality of the church throughout time and space.
