Easter must surely be the time for Good News! And there will be many stories to tell.
But this year at Stainbeck we felt especially blessed as 100 people gathered, spanning the divides of age, culture and experience, to worship the Risen Lord. Our singing was accompanied by organ, trumpet, guitar and flute, our cross was transformed as we each placed our flower – chaotic and messy but powerful – surely much like our lives? A great sign to those shopping opposite as we opened the church doors and closed our praise on the church steps. And of course, this isn’t the end of the story, as Easter, much like the love of God, is never-ending!
Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!
