Chapter Summary

Memory is important for people to live. To remember is to have a hold on one's memory and to have an identity. Christianity is a religion full of traditions and is rooted in the history of the Israelites. Personal memories depend on the person who recalls the scene and Corporate memory helps a group or a nation embrace their identity. There are ideas that God will not forget those who have been faithful to God. God's act of remembering is so important that the people that God doesn't remember have no existence at all. Remembrance is the act of remembering or process of being remembered. When used as God's action, the heart of remembering is a complex psychological and ontological action. To re-experience God's saving act through Jesus Christ is the most important memory that one should hold dear in order to prevent it from being displaced by other identities.
