Dear Friends,

Grace to you from God our Father and from our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

We traditionally begin the month of November with a remembrance of our dead on All Saints Day. The keeping of Thanksgiving in the U.S. also involves no small amount of remembering. This, together with the growing darkness and the waning of the year, makes November a time to think back on the past.  

 

As we look back, we give thanks for all the many wonderful things we have experienced in our lives. But, with honesty, we acknowledge the not so good and even the bad. In particular, we recognize that our relationships with those who have gone before us were not perfect. We take great comfort in the realization that in God, all that was left undone, unsaid, or unhealed, has been made whole and right. Perhaps this might even inspire us to tend to our relationships with the living, especially where forgiveness needs to be either given or received.

 

In this sharing of forgiveness and this making of amends across time, space, and even death, we need to remember ourselves. I suspect most of us have something for which we need to forgive ourselves. Be kind and generous to yourself in the same way that God is kind, generous, and forgiving.

 

Pax,

Pastor Austin
