Vicar’s Letters

April 2017 – News letter

Dear all,

as the promise of Easter approaches I’d like to share some of the words that have inspired me over the years – I invite you to reflect on them as you celebrate the gift of fresh hope and new life…

“Twas Easter Sunday. The full-blossomed trees filled all the air with fragrance and with joy.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“The story of Easter is the story of God’s wonderful window of divine surprise.” Carl Knudson

“Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.” Pope John Paul II

Outside of the cross of Jesus Christ, there is no hope in this world. That cross and resurrection at the core of the Gospel is the only hope for humanity. Wherever you go, ask God for wisdom on how to get that Gospel in, even in the toughest situations of life.”  Ravi Zacharias

“On Easter Day the veil between time and eternity thins to gossamer.” Douglas Horton

“Because of Easter, our coffins are nothing but canoes bearing us across the Jordan River to fairer worlds on high.” Herman Melville, Moby Dick

“God weeps with us so that we may someday laugh with him” (One single sentence that sums up the great span from Good Friday to Easter Sunday). Jurgen Moltmann

“Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet believed”. Jesus c/o John 20: 29

Celebrate and enjoy the great glory of Easter 2017…
