Memorial Day emerged shortly after the Civil War to reconcile our nation on the basis of giving and receiving forgiveness. Immediately after the Lord’s Prayer in Matthew 6 Jesus comments on only one thing from that prayer. That one thing is so important that Jesus said God would not forgive us if we did not practice it.
God does not sit back in heaven, being amused at our limited efforts to understand the infinite. All other religions seem to be this way. But not Christianity. God has taken the initiative to become one of us. And God has left clues everywhere.
