Lights on the Altar by Raymond A. Foss

Flickering lights, covering the altar
flames remembering those saints
those who have touched our lives
the Christ, our savior, our brother
all the candle glowing brightly
remaining throughout our worship
flames still burning within us
for those raised up, a candle lit,
and for those unspoken,
held in our hearts
all saints who have shaped us
this congregation, our faith
lights on the altar
in remembrance, in love

November 2, 2008
All Saints’ Day Sunday
Psalm 78:1-7
Hebrews 12:1-3 and sermon,
“Seizing the Future By Remembering the Past”,
by Reverend Huntley Halvorson
Suncook United Methodist Church
