Halloween Drive-In Cancelled

Due to weather forecasts (particularly wind) we are cancelling the planned Halloween Drive-In. We encourage you to seek safe ways to celebrate the holiday with your family. We also share the below litany intended for you and your family on Halloween.

A Litany for All-Hallows Eve – The Night of All the Saints

Tonight, surround by ghouls and goblins, witches and jack-o-lanterns, things that go bump in the night, we proclaim in the name of Jesus Christ the light of the world, The light shines in the darkness:

And the Darkness will not overcome it!

Tonight, as the days grow darker, the nights longer in what has already been a long year, we see pandemic, racism, poverty, hunger, and death and we still proclaim, the light shines in the darkness:

And the Darkness will not overcome it!

Tonight, we remember the saints who came before us. Those we knew well: family, friends. And those we didn’t know at all. The host of heaven lived through perilous times as well. They saw war, famine, pandemic, and injustice. And still they proclaim, the light shines in the darkness:

And the Darkness will not overcome it!

Together with the saints we hold to the baptismal promise of God. We are the children of God, marked with the cross of Christ forever. We are not exempt from suffering the darkness but charged with letting our light shine before others so that they may see our good works and glorify God. And so we proclaim, the light shines in the darkness:

And the Darkness will not overcome it!

No matter what lurks around the corner, the light shines

And the Darkness will not overcome it!

No matter what howls in the night, the light shines

And the Darkness will not overcome it!

No matter what the next day brings, the light shines

And the Darkness will not overcome it!

May God who calls you in this darkness enlighten your path, give you courage amidst fear, surround you in peace amidst anxiety, fill you with hope amidst despair in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, light from light, Amen.

October 28. The ELCA Fund for Leaders scholarship program supports students of promise attending ELCA seminaries. Pray that we will generously support this program to make seminary more affordable, to enable more future ministers to study and to help them graduate with less debt as they respond to God’s call to serve as the church needs and the Spirit leads.
