cross


WORD OF GOD
Christ our Passover has been sacrificed;
let us celebrate the feast then, in the Lord.
(I Corinthians 5:7-8)#
 

WORD FOR TODAY
Christ is risen from the dead and we share in his victory. From now on there is nothing that can ever claim such a hold over us as to drag us down permanently. Death, sin and evil have been taken on and have been defeated. The Church joyfully proclaims today that Jesus is Lord over all life, to the glory of God the Father.

WORDS FOR WORSHIP
Christ is risen from the dead and now invites us to live as citizens of the kingdom of God. As we await the full flowering of that kingdom let us ask the Spirit to pray in us through the words that Jesus taught us: Our Father...

FAITH IN FOCUS: TODAY’S THE DAY
Today’s the day of victory when Christ rose from the grave, conquering everything before him and restoring us to the life that God intended for us...
Today’s the day when our God lets us know in the most vivid form possible just how much we are loved...
Today’s the day when the idols of comfort, fleeting pleasure and false security go fleeing as Jesus proclaims the power of the only true God...
Today’s the day when Satan is cast down as injustice, violence, greed, pride and oppression are overcome by one man’s obedience...
Today’s the day when the empty promises that cannot satisfy us are shown in their true light...
Today’s the day when even death is subdued as we announce Christ’s shattering of the tomb and rejoice that our life with God is never ending...
Today’s the day when we are reborn once more to live as members of Christ’s Body, the Church, in unity with our fellow Christians scattered over the globe...
Today’s the day when the darkness of our lives is dispersed as the Light of the World rises upon us...
The power of this day drives away all evil, washes away all guilt, restores lost innocence, brings joy to those who mourn, casts out hatred, brings peace and humbles earthly pride.
Today is Easter Day. May we experience its power in our lives and in the lives of those we love.
A very Happy Easter!
