13th November 2016
November is the month in which we are called to remember. We are called to remember those who have suffered loss due to conflict. We especially remember those who lost their lives during the world wars. And we remember those who are suffering now.
As Christians every time we worship, we are called to remember. We are called to remember God's story, and the message that God is working to repair and save all of GOD's creation. Every Sunday we are called to remember the Easter story, that Christ is risen, and it is through the Easter story that we are a forgiven people, loved by God.
And yet this loving God that we serve, this God who remembers each of us and who calls us to remember, is a God who forgets. Our God is a God who forgets. God forgets what we have done wrong, because GOD choses to forget. So in this time when we are called to remember, remember and be thankful, that we serve a God who forgets.
I, I am God
who blots out your transgressions for my own sake,
and I will not remember your sins.
Thanks be to God.
