Welcome to worship.
We are now steaming through the Season of Easter, yet the need to be reminded that “Christ is risen. He is risen indeed, alleluia,” remains strong.
In writing this I reflected for a while on what may be some of the reasons for that, not to mention year in and year out we celebrate this great season of 50 days. I think today’s Scripture readings can help in developing some insights:
1.To help God’s in the of Christ,
lighted most poignantly during Easter (Jesus Resurrection appearances).
- Accepting that salvation is a real proposition, not achieved by human effort, but through the love and mercy of a benevolent God.
- Even the disciples struggled to accept and understand that Jesus resurrec- tion was real. They doubted, had moments of disbelief, questioned and wondered. These are important human traits. They are not opposites to faith, but simply part of the journey.
May we continue to have a fruitful and fulfilling season of Easter.
