- Willie J. Jennings - "A Request to Remember" (November 11, 2001)
Sermon start time: (Part 1) 3:45. Sermon end time: (Part 1) 19:19.
Reflecting on the thief crucified with Jesus, this sermon asserts that humans always fail to remember rightly and that it is God's remembrance of us, both honestly and graciously in Christ, that is our hope; the sermon calls hearers to pray like the thief for God to remember us. (Abstract created by Duke Divinity School staff.)
Key quotation: “Our memories fail. We forget the good and we remember only the bad. We cannot remember rightly. What is crucial is that God remembers. This God remembers that our mistakes are never final, our faith is fragile, and his desire to have us with him is eternal.”
