From the Pastor’s Desk:
As we come to the month of April, we are almost immediately into Holy Week. On Saturday (1 April) and Sunday (2 April) we celebrate Palm Sunday. At the end of the week, we observe “the Great Three Days”: Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Vigil (Holy Saturday), and, on Sunday (9 April) we gather for the observance and celebration of Easter Day (please see the calendar at the back of the Newsletter for the times). The 40 days of Lent have, I hope, created within us a deep hunger for the Resurrection of Jesus, not so that our Lenten fasting (whatever that has been) is finally over and we can go back to “life as usual”, but so that by the time we gather for the Feast of the Resurrection, we have been prepared to have our deepest hunger and thirst – the hunger and thirst for a deep and profound communion with Christ – filled to overflowing. Having died with Christ, we will be raised with him (Romans 6).
