We celebrate Easter year-round

We celebrate Easter year-round

For both Western and Orthodox churches, Easter's date changes from year to year. Here are two I like. Something new is happening.

So, while all Christians in the northern hemisphere celebrate Easter on the first Sunday after the full moon of spring, the calendars they use to determine the date are different.

I love Easter because I love the fact that we still dye Easter eggs - not just because we HAVE to, but because we WANT to. They gave testimony to how they saw the Lord.

I love Easter because the music is so uplifting - and reminds me of the people I love who sang it with me for so many years.

New comers to the church were confirmed into during the Eucharistic celebrations and charged to live in accordance with the tenants of Jesus Christ whose death and resurrection has brought hope and a new life to all Christians.

Jesus appeared in all kinds of places - in locked rooms, along the road, in the midst of fear and doubt, injustice and despair, to people who longed for meaning, purpose, wholeness and faith, and certainly in the joys of being found, healings, people being fed, the discovery of God's way and will.

While the eggs symbolise new life, the Easter Bunny is more popularly recognised as the judge of good and evil in Christian folklore. "No matter what troubles we face, we can look for a renewed hope knowing that God is in control". Coming together as a community, we invite you to join us during this Holy season when our Lord speaks to us and sets us on our journey.
