Easter has different meanings for many people. Some enjoy egg hunts and cards with soft cuddly bunnies, or new born lambs, reminding us that once again its spring and the earth is renewing itself after winter. Others choose to remember at this time the incredible story of an innocent man dying a horrific death, then miraculously returning from the dead, having offered himself up for everyone and promising that all who believe in him can have salvation from this decaying world and the force of death. Some may find this too amazing to accept that the Creator of this world could come in a physical body and do all this, yet some people see reality in Sci Fi stories, whilst we await proof of life on other planets, and others are able to believe the theory of evolution, when apes still exist, DNA actually becomes less complex in creatures that adapt, or evolve, within their environments and no missing links has yet been found. Often too, the writings and evidence of the Gospel writers has been dismissed without people encountering the texts for themselves. As Easter arrives bringing a time of renewal for nature, this can be an exciting time for us too… an opportunity to rediscover things we discarded, or took for granted and look at things in a new way. So as people revisit the Bay this month…why not think again about tried and tested traditions of Easter… why not even visit the Biblical accounts of the life of Christ to see why so many view this time as opening up incredible new beginnings for them and others?Follow
