Congregations who work through their grief over change and loss and redefine their relationship with their past can draw strength and encouragement from their memories and step boldly into God's good future with confidence.

Whereas the ditches both lead to powerlessness and passivity, humility as Jesus teaches it is empowering, fosters proactivity, and serves as a scaffold for true confidence.
