Easter Message

God’s Love was enthroned at Calvary but, glorified at Easter!

In our church services we have all been learning recently about the significance of this most holy time of year. We are thankful for the Church’s liturgical season that gives us Passion Sunday, Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and finally Easter Eve and above all that crowning of all the year’s religious festivals Easter Sunday. Indeed, Easter is becoming regarded in many quarters as even more important than that of the feast of the incarnation at Christmas – emphasising as it does the crowning and glorification of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ as king of kings and lord of lords.The Church of Scotland’s ‘Book of Common Order’  is no way different in the lectionary sequence of readings used in worship, to those shared by most other mainstream christian denominations today.

As THE national church, congregations will soon be gathering to voice their joy and praise all over Scotland and its member churches throughout the world. After reflecting upon the trials and sufferings of Christ in the long weeks of Lent, we rejoice in the glorious message of His resurrection. In four watch words of one of the greatest hymns in the English language we look forward in hope to being as the writer put it,“Ransomed, healed , restored, forgiven” (‘Praise my soul the king of heaven’, Henry Francis Lyte)

I pray that you will know the peace and joy of Christ during this time with whom ever you share it.

A Happy Easter to you all.

Reverend Anthony Jones
