Days gone by

History matters. Christianity has a foundation that goes back the early church. The lives, actions, and words of those that came before can not be ignored. The past gives meaning to the present. There is history, a context that I live in now and I can not be separated from it. The more I understand this the more I have guilt for sleeping through most of Church History. My excuse at the time was it was at 8 am. Truth is I just didn’t care. How foolish I was.

I might explain in the future a few different unrelated things lead to this thought

my Jewish Friend, do you agree that history is important or that i am foolish...or both?

Liz I so agree with you about how the past is linked to now. I too never truly looked at Church History as I should have. I mean, we can learn from those times. Espcially these days when the church is in transition between the modern and post modern age. We should look back and gain insight...nice thought!!
