Too often we try to avoid those things that remind us of sad days or dark times. And yet they are as formative and instructive as the brightest and happiest of days. So during this season of awakening nature, as the world shifts from Spring to Summer, as we celebrate Memorial Day and remember those who have gone on before us, as we inch toward the longest day of the year and let it go, let us celebrate the tender associations. Let us lift up and embrace those things of the past that are the warp and woof of our lives. —Rev. Dr. Charlie Close, Pastor of Canaan Congregational Church
