Where Were You, Where Are You Now? MMM 9-13-2010

Where Were YOU? and Where are You Now?

Monday Morning Message, September 13, 2010

9-11-2001; 1-27-1973; 6-11-1966; 11-22-1963; 12-7-1943… can you tell me where you were on these days?  I would expect most of you to get three or four but maybe some of you can even score 100%!  As I reflect on the nine years since the World Trade Center suicide bombings, it is harder to remember what it must have been like to be sitting at your desk when that first airplane penetrated the side of the building.  Or even worse, to have been a passenger on the planes that were the instruments of destruction that day. 

As we struggle to seek to know the right way to relate to people from different points of view and different religious beliefs, the Bible gives us guidance in all of those areas.  How did our country and its citizens reconcile their distrust of Germany and Japan after World War II?  How did we ever come to reconcile the deaths of our family members, loved ones, and neighbors in all of the history of our country and its wars and conflicts? 

As we move toward the ten year anniversary of 9/11, the country and western song “Have You Forgotten” is still the watch word for most of us.  My prayer for the next year’s theme for 9/11/11 is to hope that the most popular song will be “Have you Forgiven”?  Many will say it is hard to forgive when no one has asked for forgiveness.  And yet, Jesus went to the cross for you and me and offered himself as a sacrifice to the world before anyone asked him to.  It will be that much longer for us to move Forward if we fail to give forgiveness even to our enemies.  That was what Jesus did for us!  He provided Forgiveness to us long before we even knew we needed it! 

Matthew 6:14-15 (RSV) “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father also will forgive you; but if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”
