16 March 2015: Aspects of Easter – lead by Clare & John

We considered the key aspects in the Bible and for us personally. While crucifixion was common form of execution, the consequence impact on his disciples was quite different. The consequences of Easter are more important than the stories (and the details). Easter does matter as it offers an opportunity to retell the story in the light of today’s society issues. Unfortunately we and the national church don’t reframe the story. Note theology is our creation – neither true nor false – just an interpretation how how things are that is meant to be helpful not a millstone. What is the mystery of Jesus’s death that lead to so many people being inspired to step out and speak up, often to great personal cost? It has transformative power goodness can’t be destroyed – it gives hope.
