75th anniversary of the liberation of the AUSCHWITZ concentration camp / January 27, 2020
Monday marks the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp. Today world leaders are gathered in Israel to remember this somber anniversary.
At the 3-minute mark in the linked video, we hear: "The Holocaust was caused by people. It wasn't a cosmic event, and it wasn't monsters. It was human beings who were motivated by ideas more than anything else."
As church we have an important connection with people and ideas. On Sunday we will pause and remember the human depravity of Auschwitz and also the continuing Antisemitism that is on the rise in our world, and in our nation. Hopefully, when enough of us share the message of the universal, human family we can help protect ourselves from this sort of evil.
