“The Sacred Act of Remembering”
“It’s amazing how quickly we can forget our own stories,” writes Jena Nardella.
“We are inundated with the immediate pressures of today…. But how much time do we spend considering where we have come from?” she asks.
“Dan, Charlie, Matt, Steve, and I sat together … and reflected on the stories of where we have come from. It has been painful, exhilarating, disappointing, beautiful—all of it.
“We sat there, circled together … and affirmed that we are blessed to be a part of such a story.
“And then we took the great leap to dream about where we are going next.… But we could not have done that until we had remembered where we had come from. Our stories can teach us, time and time again.” (by Jena Nardella at Storyline; emphasis mine)
“Many churches have forgotten the premium
that the historic Judeo-Christian tradition
placed on remembrance …
and recalling the right things.
The ‘great sin’ of the Old Testament
(at least it is the most recurrent offense).
‘Remember’ is the most frequent command
in the Old Testament.”
(Clapham Memo, January 19, 2007, “Back and Forth,”

What stories have you forgotten?
Your stories are part of a much bigger story than you might think.
Your memoir can have an outcome beyond your expectations.
What stories do you need to remember?
“May you be as blessed as we were
in the important and
sacred act of remembering.”
