The Light ED. 40

It is vital that people & communities remember & reflect on their past.

Who we are today is the accumulation of innumerable experiences which have enriched, challenged and changed us. In the Bible, forgetting God’s great acts and blessings is such a common sin that He calls His people repeatedly not to overlook their past, but to remember what He has done in history and how they have responded to Him.

Failure to remember is fatal. ‘Our fathers, when they were in Egypt, did not consider your wondrous works; they did not remember the abundance of your steadfast love, but rebelled at the Red Sea.” (Psalm 106:7) During Israel’s dark days the prophet Jeremiah said, “This I recall to my mind, therefore I have hope. Through the Lord’s mercies, we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not.’ (Lamentations 3:21-22).

You will read the memories of staff and veteran teachers as they recall SPH’s beginnings. May their stories inspire you to hope, work and pray together for better days.
