People have accused others of "being so heavenly minded that they are no earthly good." But as C.S. Lewis points out, history confirms that those who have done the most good in this age are often those who have thought the most of the age to come. All Saint's Sunday helps us to set our minds on the things above, particularly as we focus on "the communion of saints" and the beautiful portraits provided in our readings this morning. They only scratch the surface of what has been promised to us as baptized believers in Christ Jesus.
