We seem to be living in a time of one crisis after another. It can feel like we’re part of a very dark world.
Easter is a story of hope in the midst of darkness. The events occurred 2000 years ago in a world which was also very dark. It was a world of insecurity because of wars and illness. Into this world came Jesus. He did amazing things, bringing healing and the promise of a better world. Yet they put him to death on the cross.
Had darkness won? Did evil have the final say? Is death the end?
What happened next was remarkable. Jesus, buried in a tomb came alive again. He showed himself again and again to his followers, showing that death had been defeated, evil was overcome and that light shines in the darkness.
Join us this Easter to celebrate these events and find hope in darkness today.
