On this All Saints’ Sunday and our own Heritage Sunday, we reflect upon and express our huge gratitude for our legacy. As has been said, “in life we don’t need instruction as much as we need reminding.” One of the great commands of the Lord in the Old Testament is to “remember!” In a world of constant noise and a literal avalanche of advertisers screaming at us, it is easy to forget who we are and what our lives are to be about. That is the beauty of pausing and looking back at how those before us dealt with life.
As we are in the process of taking hold of the legacy handed to us and preparing to pass it to the next generation, I pray we rest in the faithfulness of God to see this thing through to a glorious end.
