What does it mean to be a person of memory?

Photo by Tina Lesley-FoxIn the coming year we will continue to explore a theme each month in worship, Circles of Trust, faith development offerings, and other small groups. We hope that focus on a single theme will help us go more deeply in our reflection and sharing with one another, across the whole congregation!

In July we explore the theme of Memory. Enjoy the following resources.

Sermon Excerpt

“Think about the way you arrange your own memories, distill them, rework them, perfect them even—and not always by making them more faithful to the facts. Who we are today is in large measure determined by what we choose to remember and how we choose to remember it. We endow our past with significance by selectively keeping certain memories and stories alive, refreshing them, commemorating them, passing them down to our children - our failures and disappointments as well. We condense them into lessons, learning more from them over time than they originally had to teach. We tend to think of our parents differently when we ourselves become parents, for instance. We may then choose to replace tattered memories of them formulated when we were younger with new, happier memories from just as long ago. Meaning comes from fashioning and refashioning our memories into a coherent pattern. Not all coherent patterns are equally conducive to our happiness, of course. We can choose to keep alive only memories that darken the present with their shadows. The most healthy among us—by which I mean most whole, most fully reconciled with ourselves, with others, and with the ground of our being—neither repress bad memories or dismiss good ones, but rather organize our past in ways that prove most conducive to balance, reconciliation, and hope.” - Rev. Forrest Church, from a sermon titled MEMORY AND MEANING
