Christ is risen!  He is risen indeed, alleluia!  

We come once more to that season where we celebrate Jesus Christ’s new and resurrected life.  We read in Mark’s account that the first people to hear of Christ’s rising from the dead are the group of women.  They were the ones who ventured out whilst the men were still hiding in the locked upper room.  They were the ones who went to complete the burial rituals that could not be completed due to the onset of the Sabbath.  So they were the ones who met the mysterious figure in white with the startling message.  Mark provides two possible endings with the shorter ending detailing how the women fled in terror and amazement and told no-one.  Now this might not be the most promising of endings for an account of the life of the Son of God.  However, it fills me with hope because it is most probably how I would have responded in similar circumstances.

February 2016

The activities at Christmas kept me busy over the period, there was a good atmosphere at carols on the ramp which was followed by a well-attended Christingle, various events such as the Girl guiding annual Christmas service filled the church and the parties held at all three toddler groups were great fun and I managed to share the Christmas story at all three of them this year. Noisy Nativity lived up to its name as over 130 crammed in.
