History

Well written, Rev. Howell. There is truth in history and there is error (or intentional falsehood). There is by contrast the Way, the Truth, and the Life. May we be introducing Him to those who have not heard the Good News, and following Him as Savior and as Lord!

He Came In Peace.

Some were surprised when Jesus did not revolt against the government and deface statues. Rather He said, His kingdom was not from this world. He came in peace.

The Rabbi makes a good point that we can profit from history. If history is erased or re-written, it's not there to help forge a better future.

By the way, the American flag flew over slavery for nearly a hundred years, beginning in 1776. Would they remove it? It flew over slave ships from Rhode Island. It's almost a secret that slave ships were built in New York City, but I found one historic marker seems to mark the spot. Erasing history would be a mistake. These events really happened, we don't need to forget. We need to understand where we came from so we don't repeat the same mistakes.
