2009 Heritage Sunday: October 25, 2009

2009, 6 pp
These worship resources have been designed to assist Mennonite congregations in planning worship for Heritage Sunday. The focus of this denominationally recognized Sunday is on the spiritual heritage of the church, a heritage of an imperfect past which is nevertheless a gift, as Israel’s past was for Nehemiah.

A search for meaning in their new circumstances led the people of Israel to recall their past. To their credit, they did not just recall glorious triumphs, but also failures and disgraces. It is this honesty about their history that led them to truly worship, truly confess, truly address injustices, and truly work together. Reading Nehemiah compels us to ask ourselves a hard question: Can we do the difficult work—the spiritual work—of learning from an imperfect past?
