This is the first lesson -- Jesus comes looking for us When we are living daily lives that seem far removed from any visible relationship to God, Jesus comes looking for us.
We learn a second lesson today: Jesus is bigger than whatever has us by the throat Whatever it is that we have kept hidden in the dark places of our lives -- Jesus is able to come there without shame.
We learn a third lesson today: Some people really don't want to be healed. They don't want Jesus in their lives to mess around with core values and faith and everyday impacts from dealing with a demon killing, life-giving Lord. It would be too painful, too hard of a thing.
We learn a final lesson today: - Don't use your gift of faith as a means to remove yourself from the world. God is sending us back into the world that God so loves to connect, invite, grow and serve in God's name.
Text: Luther 12:13-21

It is this abundant presence of Jesus that will go with you from this place today, back to your jobs and churches and homes.
And it is this abundant presence of Jesus that can fill us up to overflowing, allowing us to spill over into the lives of people around us. Allowing us to take the bread we've been given and be the ones to hand it out to those who are hungering for it.
And it is this abundant presence of Jesus that comes and meets you in this moment . . . right where you are . . . filling you up, satisfying your hunger, and as always, offering you more, so much more, than enough.
All Saints Sunday: Today is a celebration of our blessings and the offering of our gifts to the ministry.
