Sunday 9th April 2023 – Easter Sunday

REFLECTION:

Christ is risen – he’s risen indeed! Really? Do you really believe that Christ

is risen? Do you really believe that he came back to life physically (and not

just spiritually) after being dead for three days? How is that possible? Surely

a man can’t come back to life physically.

Surely the resurrection is just a symbol or a metaphor but not a historical

event. Surely science has disproved Christianity – there’s no such things as

miracles.

We need to grow up and move with the times, don't we? If that's what you

think, it’s important to remember a few things and to hear three different

voices in our Gospel reading this morning:

-The voice of the earth (v. 2-4)

-The voice of the angel (v. 5-7)

-The voice of the Lord (v. 8-10)

To Think About:

Can you hear the voices of Easter and are you a voice of Easter yourself?
