For Parents To Teach To Their Children



“The Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed”
(All Souls)

Lectionary: 668


Our Reading for All Souls’ Day

“The souls of the just are in the hand of God,
    and no torment shall touch them.
They seemed, in the view of the foolish, to be dead;
    and their passing away was thought an affliction
    and their going forth from us, utter destruction.
But they are in peace.
For if before men, indeed, they be punished,
    yet is their hope full of immortality;
chastised a little, they shall be greatly blessed,
    because God tried them
    and found them worthy of himself.
As gold in the furnace, he proved them,
    and as sacrificial offerings he took them to himself.
In the time of their visitation they shall shine,
    and shall dart about as sparks through stubble;
they shall judge nations and rule over peoples,
    and the Lord shall be their King forever.
Those who trust in him shall understand truth,
    and the faithful shall abide with him in love:
because grace and mercy are with his holy ones,
    and his care is with his elect.”

Saints, Souls, and The Harvest


“God is pure spirit and does not have a physical body, but you

and I do.  , For instance, we have hands, and we use them in so

many ways. With our hands we can make things or express how

we feel. A picture that shows God’s hand coming out of a cloud

helps us understand that God is right here in there world with us

and that he is busy doing things too.”

Our Family Art Project

Make a poster for “All Souls’ Day” by using whatever supplies and strong paper that you have handy, and draw stripes with beautiful colors. I added a MAGNUM black Sharpie when my tempera sticks were dry.

“Dear God Prayers”

“Dear God,

We are each special and different, there

are ways that we are alike because you made

each of us in your image. Help me to

remember, God, that in your loving presence

I will always be safe and protected.”
