BibleWorkbench: Pentecost 25, November 14, 2010

Text: Isaiah 65:17-25

For I am about to create new heavens and a new earth; the former things shall not be remembered or come to mind. Is it really possible to create or discover a new earth without remembering the former things? Take time to watch YOU TUBE: “Holocaust – Forget Me Not!”

Elie Wiesel writes: “I decided to devote my life to telling the story because I felt that having survived I owe something to the dead and anyone who does not remember betrays them again.” What has been the cost of how our 21st century has remembered or forgotten the Holocaust? In your life what are those painful, embarrassing, haunting and guilt laden memories that you have worked hard to forgot and can’t? How do they define who you are? How do you limp such memories through your days? How do they continue to teach and guide you in ways that are life giving as well a source of strength and courage?
