Who has loved you into being?

Who are the special people in your life? Fred Rogers, aka Mr. Rogers, said, “All of us have special ones who have loved us into being.” Who has loved you into being?
Who are the people who have been or are saints in your life? Can you recall people who helped shape you into the person you are right now? Teachers, pastors, relatives, neighbors, and friends…People who cared about you, believed in you, and supported your dreams.
This Sunday during worship we will be remembering our saints of the church – the people who have passed away since our last All Saints’ celebration. Some of the folks will be familiar, others not so; all were part of The Palms.
We will also be recalling people who have died this past year who are not part of The Palms but who played crucial roles in our lives: friends, neighbors, relatives, pastors, teachers.
Remembering and giving thanks – do some remembering this week and give thanks!
Shalom, Paul
