A Room Named Remember
As followers of Christ, we each have our own set of touchstones in our faith, which start at the cross when our Lord and Savior died to save sinners like us. And we discover other touchstones in experiences of God’s holiness or sustaining presence which are mile markers along our journey of faith. Kairos moments in which time seems to stop; times when we find ourselves in a “thin place” and God is close enough that we could reach out and touch him. Memories of moments when we knew, absolutely, positively,without a doubt that there is a God and he loves us very, very much just the way we are. (Though he longs for us to become so much more.)
These are the memories that fill up the room named Remember*. And when the storm is at its most powerful and most uncontrollable and when we feel most alone, we can each open up the door to the room named Remember and“remember consciously to remember the lives we have lived,” lives which are our own beautiful, quirky little testimonies of God’s faithfulness.
