Easter Week Reflections

Monday: Revd. Tony Berry

“But the truth is that Christ has been raised from death……”

1 Corinthians 15 v 20  [From the Good News Bible]

I love this verse. It comes in the middle of St Paul explaining to those early Christians how central to the Christian faith the resurrection is. Yes it is hard to grasp, that is exactly what Paul was having to deal with in the Corinthian church, they found it hard to get their heads around just as many do today. 

This generation is facing mortality in a way it has never had to do. Previous generations sadly lost loved ones in this sort of number through untreatable disease and illnesses, and through wars and of course on a bigger scale than this. But for us this is new and intense. It brings great anxiety and fear.

So maybe it is worth pondering on what the Bible has to say about life, and death and what lies beyond it, and maybe discovering what is called the Christian hope.

Heavenly Father we pray for those who are facing death at this time, may your love surround them and may they find hope by putting their trust in you.  Amen

I am moved and inspired by Barack Obama, a Christian who acts out his faith. Click HERE for an Easter Prayer he delivered in the White House in 2016. Wouldn't it be great to chat with him about the issues he raises, as well as those he affirms, in this prayerful address?

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4. 4-7  (NIV)
