As the long dark nights of winter start to give way to more sunlight, the shoots of spring flowers remind us that better days are just around the corner. The world is filled with signs of hope, if we open our eyes to see them. At times in our lives, we can live in seemingly endless gloom, where hope is hard to find and even harder to hold onto. But we have a story of God's good news, which came in the person of Jesus - a light to the world. His light has not gone out, even though it's been 2000 years. He is still as real and present as he ever was. Jesus offers God's love and forgiveness, and following him gives purpose to our lives, building God's kingdom in this world, with hope for eternal life to come.
We can all slip back into gloom or darkness at
times. On our own, it can be difficult to see the light. But I find
that the church is a place where we regularly remind one another of the hope
that we have. We can be lights for each other, and we can worship Christ,
the light of the world, reminding each other of God's love and grace – and we
pray it will overflow into our community.
Winter can be hard, but spring comes with hope
and joy. In the church it brings with it the new life and resurrection of
Easter. We are people who believe that
death is not the end, darkness will be overcome by light, and God's love keeps
on breaking through. You are always welcome to join us!
With best wishes,
Rev. Andy Murphy
