Common Saints by Raymond A. Foss

Their elderly voices, these matriarchs
rich with memory, with love
warm, living words
remembering the saints in their lives
dear loved ones, some long passed
those who showed them Christ
who loved God, and their neighbors
bringing them the truth of their faith
examples of those worthy
living the name Christian
shared in the words they offered
in worship, in your sanctuary
given to us, a community gathered
in your house, oh Lord,
to hear your word for us.

October 15, 2009
Luke 10:25-37
& October 14, 2009 worship service
after Our Family’s Table,
with reflections on the Good Samaritan
by Reverend Huntley Halvorson,
and the recollections of
Ursula, Murtha, and Eleanor
