Easter Reflections

Well what an Easter weekend!

The all new Good Friday meetings seemed to go well. People really seemed to enjoy "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe", with quite a number asking when we're going to be showing "Prince Caspian"! The evening meeting was really well attended too, with large numbers of visitors at both.

Then on Easter Sunday I think the final count of people baptisted was 22 - a great way to celebrate Christ's resurrection. We also saw a number of people make first time commitments over the weekend - very cool!

One question will be what we do for Good Friday next year. There seemed to be a real appetite to meet and reflect on the cross so I'd be interested to hear peoples comments.

Next Sunday we start our series on the Holy Spirit. I'm going to be posing a number of questions as to how we see the work of the Holy Spirit in the context of our Kerith Community - I'm looking forward to us engaging in that conversation together.

Have a great rest of the Easter holiday and hope to catch you next Sunday.

Simon.

Thank you for the Easter reflections on the Good Friday service. On mine I wrote I wanted to forgive my parents bitterness within my life caused by the bad relationship and history within my family. I call my parents at least once a month, and inside me is so much anger when I do, I only ring to check on my younger brothers. I phoned them on Monday, I had no butterflies in me and I can honestly say it felt like someone else was in my room when I was talking to them.

Thanks
