Easter...Spring break..long weekend...spring cleaning...DIY...family...food...chocolate...no shops open on Sunday!!!!..egg hunts....hot cross buns...fish on Friday..the Cross
Easter means a lot of different things to us - and it is all these things, but it's also the Main Event in the Christian calendar - this is it - Jesus' death and resurrection.
And on our own we struggle a bit to reconcile, or perhaps to even make space for remembering Jesus. A big help for me is to come to Church - to worship together and hear the Bible, and to reflect and celebrate together. Tonight we're meeting from 7-8pm - it's Good Friday - how does that historical event impact us now? There's drama, songs, Bible readings and communion. We're able to park in the College car park, so lots of space for us all!
So, enjoy the moments - all the varied Easter moments this long weekend - God bless you!
If you've some time for more, here's a wonderful Easter song (which we may well be hearing this weekend at Kerith) and then there are some links to great blogs - enjoy!
