How Easter Redefines The Impossible

How Easter Redefines The Impossible SERMON PULPIT EXCHANGE JANUARY 18 2009 The disciples were right to be stunned by Jesus’ words. He had just told them, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God” (Mark 10:24-25). You can hear the shock in their voice when they ask, “Who then can be saved?” How much more surprised they must have been when he replied, “With man this is impossible.” Various attempts to soften Jesus’ words have been made, but the disciples’ reaction shows that they understood the full force of what he meant. In an attempt to feel better about themselves some have tried … Read entire article »

What Is Easter?

What Is Easter? Easter is one of the most important and holiest of all the festivals on the Christian calendar. It is a celebration of death and of rebirth as Christians celebrate the crucifixion and subsequent rising from the dead of Jesus Christ. These days, Easter is celebrated with a church service on Good Friday, and the giving of small Easter Gifts on the Sunday. As with many other Christian celebrations, a lot of our Easter symbols and traditions of today have their roots in paganism. When the Emperor Constantine of Rome converted to Christianity and decreed it to be the sole religion of the empire, the Christian religious leaders integrated many of the pagan rituals that were common at the time with those of Christianity.

Easter Bank Holiday Heat

Easter Bank Holiday Heat The Easter weekend that we have just experienced was the hottest on record, and for that reason it comes as no surprise that we saw thousands of people flooding to resorts like West Wittering, Southbanks, Bournemouth and Brighton in the south, and Blackpool and Weston Super Mare in the north. Brighton experienced a surge of over four hundred thousand people in that weekend alone, and shops and cafes struggled with the large amounts of tourists that descended, running out of drinks and food due to the large amount of people flooding through their doors. The traffic also increased, as it’s notoriously difficult to get in and out of Brighton, and tailbacks were seen as far as twenty miles away from the city, but people preserved … Read entire article »
