MESSAGE FROM THE MINISTER

Hello all,

How wonderful and how amazing it must have been on that first morning to discover that Jesus was risen, death was no more and everything that he had told them and promised them was true!

I often wonder if we still hold onto the joy and excitement? Lent can seem long and hard, and challenging and when we finally come to Easter Sunday do we too celebrate like those women did? And how long does that celebration go on for? – The duration of that service? One day? Two?

Sometimes I think we forget that we are resurrection people. Death is no more, Christ has come and he has risen from death, yet often we live a life that does not show this. Often we focus on the negative, and the trouble and torments of life.

We don’t have to look far to see that we are living in difficult and challenging times. While writing this, our relationships with Russia are under strain, war continues in the middle east and 3000 people are facing redundancy as Toys R Us face a financial crisis. Yet in it all there are signs of hope, signs of people showing generosity, compassion, understanding and love to one another. During the difficulties in the snow many in the community helped one another in all kinds of ways, even offering lifts to strangers to help them get to work. We have the new Cheddington Community Choir starting which will bring a bit of fun and singing to village life, and GLU, the youth club at the Methodist Church which sees a regular group of teenagers which would otherwise be bored on a Sunday evening meeting to share food and do various activities. We are looking to getting Wifi connected in the chapel which will open up lots of opportunities for the community and how we work together. There is so much to celebrate in Cheddington.

This Easter I want to encourage you to walk in resurrected footsteps; to step out in hope, knowing that you are loved, that death is no more, that Jesus, the Messiah, truly is risen and in that we have much to celebrate!

Hallelujah! Christ is risen! He is risen indeed, Hallelujah!!

With blessings
Rev. Donna Broadbent-Kelly
