Reflections

Reflection, Ben Ward - Worship Pastor

 

Did you know that in the Church calendar Easter is a full 50 days? Most of us are used to having that glorious celebration on Easter Sunday and then looking forward to next year. But the early Church felt that there should be more to mark the greatest event in all of history: the resurrection of the Son of God. So they created Eastertide which runs from Easter Sunday to Pentecost. This is the longest season in the Church calendar. It says to us that the feast is always longer than the fast (Lent is 40 days). Generations of the Church say to us that this is the most important part of who we are as believers; we are resurrection people!

It has been said of our culture, “We know how to anticipate an event, but we don’t know how to sustain it.” This Easter season let’s find a way to celebrate new life. Some people plant a garden or begin learning a new language. Just like we sometimes fast during Lent may we feast and celebrate that Jesus has come to bring us life - life to the full!

Reflection, Jamie Nicholas - Office Manager

As Easter approaches, my heart only feels excitement as I think of the resurrection power of the cross that has rescued me. This power has healed my heart, delivered, and set me free. Through Christ’s sacrifice I can enter into right relationship with the Father and oh how, I am His child. What a wonderful gift I have received. It makes me think of those around me who have yet to experience this grace. My heart is moved with compassion and I feel compelled to pray that they too would have the opportunity to witness His touch and hear the good news. Would you join me this coming week in prayer, consulting the Lord about who we could invite, pray for, encourage, or even welcome into our homes for a meal. What if Easter morning was the day when those we care for sense the presence of God, experience His love, and be delivered from darkness? Why does this excite my heart? This could be their day! With great expectation, I look forward to this week, giving praise to my king, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the king of Israel!” (John 12:13).
