Last week Joel spoke about the importance and value of telling the stories of what the Lord has done for us on our spiritual journeys. When we do look back on what happened in the past, however, there are also dangers. Our memories of the past have a powerful effect on our present experience. When should we try to leave behind what has happened in the past and not dwell on it and when is there value in reflecting on the past? This Sunday we will try to understand how the Lord would like us to hold our memories of the past.
