Listening to a sermon from a visiting preacher one Sunday morning really drove a point home to me about family. He asked the question "How many of you have attended a family reunion this year?"
Several raised their hands indicating they had gone to a family reunion this year. I raised my hand because I had attended a reunion for my wife's family and thoroughly enjoyed it. I only wish that my family would do the same every year.
Family reunions can be a time of rejoicing, renewing kinship of family members you see only once a year, or could be a time of settling disputes with brothers and sisters. Harboring harsh feelings for unkind acts or words of hurt from one to another can only fester and creates ill will for years if amends are not made and settled.
