This past year has been a time of challenge and anxiety for all of us, and a time of suffering and grief for many.
Easter brings a message of hope out of great suffering and death.
The death of Jesus and his rising from the dead can bring us both comfort and renewed encouragement.
There are hopeful signs that we are coming out of the Covid restrictions so let us celebrate this Easter with a renewed sense of purpose and faith, knowing that ultimately the Light will conquer the darkness of our sin and suffering.
Christ has died
Christ is risen
Christ will come again. Amen.
