The Mary Valley remembers at Easter

REV IAIN Watt is minister in the Mary Valley area which has been threatened by the proposed construction of the Traveston Crossing Dam.

Almost 12 months from the day when Premier Beattie announced almost a thousand homes will have to be resumed Mr Watt sees hope in the Easter story.

“How do we pass this anniversary appropriately? We will survive but we will be different. Christians have a wonderful way to face trials, disappointments, suffering and even death.

“To our community facing such things, the truth is always life giving and healing. For us Jesus has come, he has lived our life and died our death. At Easter we celebrate his victory and the life possible in his resurrected power. This is the truth and the truth sets free.”
