As we enter the Easter weekend, I hope that you are able to stop and take a breath after a hectic start of the year. However, I also hope that it will be more than another long weekend for you and that you will be able to reflect again on the significance of what we celebrate. The death and resurrection of Jesus lies at the very heart of all we believe and while it is occupies a fair amount of our consideration at all times, Easter is an opportunity to focus our hearts and minds on what Jesus accomplished and the hope that we now have.

Whether you are able to do this by attending one of our services (or with other communities of faith if you are traveling) or by taking special time in your day to worship, pray, and reflect, I hope you are able to make the space to do something over this weekend.

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
