Throughout Lent, we considered the cross - the weight, the pain and the suffering of Christ. We also considered the cost of being a Christ follower. On Easter Sunday, we rejoiced and celebrated in our risen Saviour. It was a special time of worship for those who attended our many services, including the 60 people who attended our sunrise service on Kennedy Road. Later in the day we learned of the pain and suffering of brothers and sisters in Christ in Sri Lanka. We grieve, we wonder, we pause, as we process the effects of this tragedy.
Scripture acknowledges that we do not know what tomorrow will bring. (James 4:14) Indeed, life as we know it can change very quickly. May we always remember God’s promises, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth give way, and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, and the mountains quake with their surging.” Psalm 46:1-3
