Focus

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.

Easter Action.

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?

Easter Revival

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.

Work in Progress.

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.

Dawning Potential

Monday 28 March

A stormy day?

Have you got out the wrong side of the bed?

Life grim?

 

Easter is simply recognising the potential of possibility.

Because ‘He is Risen!’

 

Easter Rising!

Sunday 28 March

Close you eyes – dark isn’t it ! But then open them and brilliant clarity. Isn’t that resurrection material?

An author passes and yet lives on through their writings. Isn’t that resurrection-like?

A girl is killed in a car crash, her organs used to enable others to live, her family are upheld by this sacrifice. Isn’t that resurrection- esk? 

Star Wars spirality sees followers gifted by the very death of a master and leader. Very resurrection!

But there is much, much more to Easter.

A weak, frightened group of individuals changed because of something more significant. Our learning of death not being final, can make us into communities that recognise God’s kingdom in the present.

With God everything is possible. Jesus physical statement beyond death make all things new and possible.
When a Christian say “Christ is Risen!” There is reason to know that our hope can lead us to many destinations.

Have yourself a blessed Easter. 

Easter Eve

Prayer for Easter Eve

God, our light and our salvation,illuminate our lives,
that we may see your goodness in the land of the living,
and, looking on your beauty,
may be changed into the likeness of Jesus Christ our Lord.
