“Keep doing this in remembrance of me.”Luke 22:19
A few weeks ago, we had a discussion around the dinner table about beliefs. I must admit I have generally kept my beliefs about God to myself most of my life, only because I don’t like controversy and I don’t enjoy debates on matters people hold sacred. You never know how much pain you might cause someone else when you defend your own faith.
However, I don’t like that to be interpreted as a sign of my lacking faith. To the contrary, I think the older I get, the more relevant and meaningful my cherished beliefs are. I become more and more sceptical of those who dismiss having a faith as believing in a fairy tale or being brainwashed. I used to see their point of view, but now I think they are talking codswallop.
In a world plagued by problems mankind has caused, every promise and every prophecy in the scriptures, along with every prayer expressing faith in the solution only God can provide is valid and it is quickly becoming clearer that there really is one hope for salvation.
We have a number of messages from friends and colleagues this past month telling us how they will commemorate this meaningful event and after some discussion, Robert and I have decided to set aside this evening to join a zoom service remembering the greatest gift in all history.
