Dear Members & Friends of Wallneuk North Church,
Happy Easter 2021 is on the brink of arrival and Christians from across the world have started preparing for the Easter 2021 with high enthusiasm and the utmost happiness in their hearts. Easter day is the holy Easter Sunday when Jesus Christ was resurrected from death for the well-being of humanity and wiped off evil elements from the society. Moreover, this festival signifies the miracle and love of God for humanity.
Jesus was declared dead after the crucifixion on Good Friday, however, when His disciple visited his tomb, the tomb was empty and later many individuals witnessed the presence of Jesus.
Not many individuals know that Easter day is a moveable festival. There is no date fixed in the Calendar for Easter day celebration because it is based on the day of Vernal equinox. Earlier, the council of Nicaea in 325 A.D. decided that Easter will always fall on the first Sunday after the first full moon.
This Year's 2021’s Easter will be completely different than last year when we had to stay at home and all our lent season's and Easter's celebrations were canceled because of COVID-19.
This year, Easter Sunday will be symbolizing Renewal of Hope, a rebirth, and most of all, a victory of Life over death and destruction. Just as the disciples were in a lockdown situation because of their fear of death. We have been missing what was previously a Normal routine in daily life. Last year we missed Easter seasonal routine, such as, Lenten Bible Study, Holy Week Services, Walk on Palm Sunday & Good Friday Walk. Unfortunately, COVID 19 has affected our lives in many ways. It has effortlessly transcended, borders, race, gender, social and economic classes, religion, & beliefs. It is a virus, that has made us all equal in our vulnerability, & still reminding us of our common frailty as human beings. Who would have thought, that our weapons, science, technology and means to fight enemies, and disease, could in such a short period of time become useless!
For our survival we have simply gone back to basic hygiene, and how we relate to each other as human beings. Indeed, who could have imagined, an Easter where Christians do not congregate to commemorate the death and resurrection of Christ? Yet, in the midst of all this painful uncertainty, it is easy to get caught up in worry and anxiety trying to keep up with everything that is happening around us. There are already scholars and large consulting firms, predicting life after COVID-19.
There was a programme on BBC telling us what life would be like in the UK after this Pandemic. On this Easter 2021 we should focus on a new us, a new Church united with Sandyford, indeed a new world will emerge out of the current pain and uncertainty. A lesson that has been reinforced in these circumstances is the reality, that our lives will no longer be about having or doing, but about BEING…just being … and in BEING, finding comfort in the deep understanding that the bonds we share as human beings & as the body of Christ. Our bonds are much stronger and deeper than the logo or even the words of our mission statements. There are bonds that remain unbroken even in times like these where death is a threat.
Let this Easter hope, keep us going; that the collapse & dying of old ways, and the emergence of new ones, will only serve, to multiply us, like a grain of wheat falls into the earth then new life begins. It is also called the fresh Expression or New way of being the Church. When the disciples were discouraged, disappointed & depressed in their lockdown since Good Friday, the resurrected Lord appeared to them on Easter Sunday. I think people desperately need to hear this message of Easter hope, right now, when they are disappointed, discouraged, perhaps depressed in a lockdown situation.
Zoom has been a great blessing to keep in touch and have meetings & church services Sunday by Sunday
I am always delighted to visit you or to have a wee chat on the phone, WhatsApp or Facebook messenger.
Please keep in touch, you are all in my thoughts & prayers.
