Prayer: Lord, help me to sing, Alleluia! Alleluia!
Reading: Daniel 7:1-3, 15-18 (Click to read text)
Stop and GROW: After reading the text, discuss/ponder the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America's Book of Faith questions, which are part of Camp Mount Luther's GROW Time with campers.
QUESTION 1: What scares, confuses, challenges, or doesn’t make sense to me in this text?
QUESTION 2: What delights me in this text or is my favorite part of the story?
QUESTION 3: What stories or memories does this text stir in me?
QUESTION 4: What is God up to in this text?
Reflection: If you started to read the text for today and quit after the first 3 verses, please go back and read the rest of the text. We really need the interpretation of the dream. It is about God’s faithfulness for “the Holy Ones of the Most High.” They are the ones who “possess the kingdom forever—forever and ever.”
On this All Saint’s Day, who are those saints you remember? Who are those loved ones made holy by our God? Who are those who are gone for now who brought you up in the faith? Who are those whose laughter and wisdom you cherish? Who are those who are held in God’s loving embrace and for whom you give thanks?
For all the saints who from their labors rest. Alleluia! Alleluia! --Jim Bricker
