A word or two from Mairi
From "The Link" Parishes Newsletter,
We have journeyed together along that long and winding path
to the foot of the cross. Lent is never an easy or pleasant journey
to travel because it is a time that calls us to stop, take stock,
and reflect on where Christ is in our own lives.
Easter is the season that gives meaning and hope to all seasons in our lives, because no matter how many other seasons we go through, without Easter there would simply be no hope, no gospel message, no church and no faith.
We could still learn about how Jesus was born, His wonderful ministry and His horrific death but if there was never to be an empty tomb and a risen Christ it would be pointless, simply a story of tragedy and not triumph. How sad it would have been for mankind if it was always Lent and never Easter.
May God bless you as you pause once again at the foot of the cross and await that joyous moment of Easter Sunday morning.
