A Good Easter Break...?
A friend asked me this week if I had a good Easter break? For those who lead churches Easter is not a break it is a full-on exhilarating time. Good Friday saw us join with other churches in the town to worship and reflect, then walk together through the town. I love it when we get together. One of the highlights was Richard Littledale, Newbury Baptist Church minister, speaking of death and hope following the death of his wife at Christmas. Powerful. We had Good Friday dinner with neighbours. Easter Sunday Sunrise saw us again join with other Christians at the bandstand to worship and pray for the town. We then went to our respective churches for Easter Sunday celebrations - ours was full of costume, drama and exciting worship. An Easter break? No. But a great time.
