We all know the word Easter, but what does it actually mean? I think a lot of people are aware it has something to do with religion and church, and that there is a long weekend—but is it a celebration? Nearly a billion people will celebrate Easter again this year—so we are talking something really big here. Obviously, it is more than chocolates, Easter eggs or hot cross buns.
As we know from the Gospels, Jesus Christ rose from the dead on the third day following his crucifixion, which would be Sunday. His resurrection marks the triumph of good over evil, sin and death. It is the singular event which proves that those who trust in God and accept Christ will be raised from the dead.
Since Easter represents the fulfillment of God's promises to mankind, it is the most important holiday on the Christian calendar. We are an Easter People and Alleluia is our song!
You are all invited to the regular Pop-In Lunch at Fosdyke Village hall on April 23rd at 12:30pm. Please contact Jon Tofts to book your Lunch. £5 each. All proceeds for Church funds.
