Many Hands, One Heart, Sacred Love for All
Sunday November 1st, 2020 at 10:30 am

Come to the Manor, the table is ready, “When The Saints Come!”
      Revelation 7:9-17   • 1 John 3:1-3  • Matthew 5:1-12

 

A Saint takes the broken as they are.
My friend Roy Robson, 87 years old, a painter, a musician, a teacher. A companion, who, takes me as I am, wherever we go.
Then there is Edna Mathews, 95 years old, knits hundreds of hats, mitts, and scarves, still drives, and manages her own home.
Finally, Mutya, a mother from the Philippines, brought three children to sponsor, then there was an oops. A daughter with a daughter.

We are the saints. In the writings of Revelation, there was a great multitude, white robes before the sacred throne. God heard the cries of the people, in the voice of oppression. God heard the fear in the vision of the people. These are they who have come out of the great ordeal.

These are they who heed the warning, follow the ways of God. These are they who meet the unjust world order beyond the Pax Romana. God with us, in the face of dethroned Caesar. These are they who inspired hope for a better world, heaven on earth. Salvation is now for people at the edge, to renew, to change, to care for the earth. These are they who meet the suffering in the life, to mend, to heal, and restore. 

We are they, we are the children of God. We are they to be instruments of God’s creative love and forgiveness. Love is the word, give us strength, to encounter hardship, as children of God. We are of God, assured of freedom, become, God with us,

God with us who proclaims “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

It is the sermon on the mount. The place of purpose, ministry, character of the kingdom, communion of saints. Jesus mountain, echoes Sinai, receive the live, live the law of love.

Live and be the authority of kingdom of heaven now.  

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.

Teresa of Avila a maker, a saint of today. .

We are the saints, the makers of today.
