Celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus.

On Easter Sunday Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. But many are like doubting Thomas, (See Bible reading on Worship page.) find it difficult to believe that he was raised from death. But there are many accounts from those who saw him, and the experience led many to give their live to tell people about him. His message was one of love and peace. Believing in him means a change in lifestyle from selfishness and greed to one of love and compassion for others. If those politicians who have a selfish hunger for power were follow his teaching, they would stop using violence and hate and work to make the world a better place for all.   




We live in a world that needs a whole lot of love, love of others particularly those who are homeless, persecuted and exploit by the greedy and selfish.
St Paul tells us: “Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong but rejoices in right. (1 Corinthians 13.4-6.). We pray that our world can be filled with a love that drives out hate and violence.
