Title: Remembrance
Series: Reconstructing Your Faith

What stones of remembrance do you have in your life? Several times in the Bible we hear about ancient tribes and individuals marking significant times of God’s rescue, intervention, and saving grace by erecting altars made of rocks or stones. Those physical structures served as stark reminders of God’s mighty hand at work in the world. At work in nations and individual lives.

But this is not just a historical phenomenon. In our modern world we also mark significant moments – metaphorically and sometimes even physically as both individuals and communities. Those times of remembrance bind us together as people.

“Now choose twelve men, one from each tribe. Tell them, ‘Take twelve stones from the very place where the priests are standing in the middle of the Jordan. Carry them out and pile them up at the place where you will camp tonight.’”

Joshua 4:2-3 (NLT)
