Ecclesiastes 11:8-10, 12:1-8

For our second All In Sunday, the theme is Dia De Los Muertos, the Mexican Festival of the Day of the Dead. This festival is a time to remember loved ones who have passed away. People often do this by building an ofrenda, which is kind of like a shrine, filled with things that remind people of their loved ones, and makes them feel near. It's a celebration of the good things that we have from these people, and an act of thanksgiving for their love and teachings.

Death is something that we all must experience. It can be good to face it sometimes, and especially as Christians, remind ourselves that death is not the end, and that it is important to live this life we have fully and deeply, following Jesus' example.
