David Ensign: All Saints' Day in the Reformed Tradition

(Clarendon Presbyterian Church)

David Ensign, the minister at Clarendon Presbyterian Church (community inclusive, progressive, diverse): All Saints' Day has a rather different focus in the Reformed tradition. While we may give thanks for the lives of particular luminaries of ages past, the emphasis is on the ongoing sanctification of the whole people of God. Rather than putting saints on pedestals as holy people set apart in glory, we give glory to God for the ordinary, holy lives of the believers in this and every age. All Saints' Day has been celebrated on November 1 since the year 835.
