Much to remember


November is a time for remembering. All Saints Day on the 1st of November gives us the opportunity to remember those we’ve known and loved who have died, and now live life eternal with Christ Jesus. These are the people who have touched our lives with grace, humour and love. We remember good times and laughter but often there are difficult or painful memories too.

Communion, celebrated at the start of the month, is a sacrament of remembrance – remembering Jesus whose love for us we celebrate with bread and wine.

Then there is Remembrance Day. For many of us, there may not be memories of particular people. Some are too young to remember individuals who died during the World Wars – or we have not known people who served in more recent conflicts. Rather we remember the shocking numbers of people who lost their lives, we remember the dreadful atrocities of war. But remembering is not just about the past, today in our newspaper pages and our television screens we see the horrors of present day wars. Remembering has a future element to it too.

Remembering the catastrophe of war inspires us to work for peace. Remembering our loved ones reminds us to live our own lives to the full. Remembering Jesus’ love for us fills us with hope for the future. Thanks be to God who remembers us!
