Thought for the day 14/04/2020
How was Easter?
Different, no doubt, but hopefully also a chance to step down a gear and reflect on the Easter story.
Here at All Saints and St Mary’s we held virtual services on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Day. If you wish, you can view them on our churches’ facebook pages and also on You Tube – type in “St Mary’s Buckden” to access.
The phrase that struck me during these services was this one: ‘Do not be afraid’. That seems particularly apposite this year, with so many affected by Covid 19 and so much of what was ‘normal’ now uncertain.
The great message of Easter is one of hope. The Queen rightly reminded us of this hope in her Easter message as she reflected that ‘we need Easter as much as ever. The discovery of the risen Christ on the first Easter Day gave his followers new hope and fresh purpose, and we can all take heart from this.’
Take care and have a good day.
