EASTER – 2017
At Easter, we reflect on Jesus’ life, death and resurrection – a time of mourning and celebration. On Good Friday, we grieve together as we remember how Jesus died upon the cross and our own role in his suffering. But as Holy Saturday draws to a close and Easter Sunday dawns, we celebrate the resurrection, the rolling away of the stone.
We are reminded that Christ was sent for us & died for us – so that we could be raised into new life with him.
The Easter story reminds us of the power of God’s enduring love in an ever-changing world. Easter offers an opportunity to be refreshed and enter a new season.
Jesus said: “I am the resurrection and the life…” (John 11:25)
