The All Saints' Reader

Life is a journey. Yet, no matter what path we've taken, we've all landed here. 

The All Saints' Reader is All Saints' literary journal comprised of the many voices, thoughts, hearts, and stories of our friends and fellow parishioners. The journal aims to share wisdom gained and wisdom earned with our readers, feed the spirit, and stir the soul.

Here's a "sneak peek" of our current issue:

An excerpt from "Lost in the Wilderness":

"Even though these losses are distinct, they've become entangled in a way that's surprised me. At some point last summer (who really remembers), a friend pointed out that grief can be cumulative."

-Jennifer Wickham

An excerpt from "Respite":

"As they walk away from the counter, it suddenly hits me that they have nothing. I think back to when they first arrived at the respite center. They came in with each other and nothing else." 

-Gayle Gottlich
