Remember, Remember…

November is always the month of remembrance. The famous rhyme tells us to ‘remember, remember’. We also take time to remember and reflect on wars in days gone by. Looking back and remembering are important, but not always helpful. As we remember WW1 particularly this year it is important that we don’t just remember, but we also learn in order to shape our future together. The past always has important lessons to teach us about our future. As you look back and remember this November what have you learned, what should you learn? On this topic I am always reminded of the words of Habakkuk: ‘Lord, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, Lord. Repeat them in our day, in our time make them known’ 3:2. Remember, learn and look.

Pastor Ben.
