So the children were all excited for their gold coins and dollar bills. But then we had to remind them that most Lutheran children don't celebrate the saints so how 'bout not mentioning your good fortune in Sunday School? I can just imagine the rumors, "the pastor's kids worship the saints! Scandal!"
On a serious note, we do love the saints around here. We love their stories of faith and sacrifice. Martin Luther loved the saints too, so it's not like we're out of line.
