It is now officially Spring! The sun is shining in a clear blue sky and the daffodils are out in abundance as I write. Following on from the darkness and struggle through winter, the hope of new life and renewed energy is in the air! We are part-way through the season of Lent when Christians remember the dark times of Jesus as he struggled, tempted in the wilderness and then on his journey to the cross. When it seems things can get no worse, as Jesus is crucified on Friday, there follows his resurrection three days later, on Sunday. New life and hope of a new beginning - new understanding and a renewed sense of purpose.

Annually we are called to remember and journey closer to Jesus at this time. The message that flows throughout this season is to turn to God to help us through life’s challenges and lead us into life in its fullness. God came as fully God and fully human in the person of Jesus to help us do this. In God’s strength, love prevails over hatred, and this is the message of hope that it seems we increasingly need to hear and apply to our lives in these times.

The Launde Deanery Lent groups continue to meet on Thursdays 4th and 11th April. Everyone can still download the free daily reflections ‘Lent Pilgrim’ from the Church of England website – these are short and accessible, relating to everyday faith. We are enjoying dipping into these in our informal Lent group conversations, you are still welcome to join us for these, 7.30pm at Launde Abbey.Contact me for further information.

You are all invited and will be warmly welcome at our Church services throughout April, including Holy Week and Easter.

A prayer for Easter:

Praise to you, O risen Christ, about whom it was said, ‘The dawn from on high will break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.’ (Luke 1:78b,79)

May you and your families know the joy of life in the risen Christ this Easter.
