Monday 4 April
The prayer at the end of one of this morning’s psalm was moving for me.
Gracious God, you are full of compassion;
may we who long for your kingdom to come
rejoice to do your will
and acknowledge your power alone to save;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
so very Easter in its focus.
Sunday 3 April
Today we has a simple baptism, the Easter moment.
Turning to Christ, turning to the Easter light.
Not just the candidate but also the whole garnered community.
Easter action pure and active?
Saturday 2 April
A rock group – Snow Patrol – song is an ear worm to me at the moment.
“Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I’ll be right beside you dear.”
I keep thinking of Easter as i hum!
Friday 1 April
They were seen as foolish – the dead raised to life.
But the disciple’s move from fear to faithful – Easter was real.
Thurday 31 March
I was talking with a friend who is hearty and well. This is at the end of a sustained period of depression.
From small, scared and insignificant to self sustaining self aware and spiritually alive.
They remind me of some certain Easter disciples.
Wednesday 30 March
I was reading a book about a Chinaman writing about London in 1938. On Spring he said: “Sring comes in fits and starts…”
I wanted to simply answer that Easter comes all at once.
But as Easter people I see that we are a work in progress.
Tuesday 29 March
Easter Sunday followed the previous two Sunday’s when a sudden increase of worshippers seemed to answer our prayers for growth. Even humble Evensong welcomed extra worshippers.
‘New the green blade rises’ was sung – an amazing reflection of a busy Passiontide and Easter.
Jesus – making all things new.
