Easter is great, isn’t it? Two four-day weeks and a four-day weekend in the middle!
Plus spring is just around the corner, warmer weather, flowers are budding, chocolate eggs are being given, yummy roast lamb is being served!
I remember as a child going to church on Good Friday and thinking it was weird people celebrating that Jesus died on a cross. But for Christians Easter is about why Jesus died and what it achieved, to rescue us and by rising again defeating death. That’s why today is Good Friday and we consider Easter to be happy!
This little video summarises the gospel accounts of Jesus’ death, leaving you to consider what you think about it all. Have a look, and I hope you have a happy Easter discovering the real message behind Easter.
