Reflection Time and Prayer

We are approaching a very important Christian festival, that of Easter.  So I thought that it would be good to remind ourselves of the Easter Story in the Bible.  Watch the following video that retells the Easter Story: (click the picture to take you to the story)

How does the story make you feel?  Happy or Sad? Or both?  Sometimes stories can be both sad and happy, and sometimes  stories are hard to understand. Are there things in our lives that we don’t understand? Are things happening even now that are difficult or make us sad?

The Easter story reminds us that, even in difficult times, there is always hope.

Prayer of the Day

Dear God,
Thank you for sending Jesus into our world to teach us about your love for us.
Help us this Easter to celebrate the joy of his resurrection and the joy of your presence with us.
Amen.
