Remember the Easter promise

In the hyper-commercialised lead-up to Easter, it can be easy to forget that Easter eggs are more than about chocolate—they are a promise. Traditionally they were chickens’ eggs which, just like Jesus’ tomb, lie dormant for a time and then crack open as new life springs forth. They are symbols of hope and resurrection, reminding us that not only did Jesus die, he rose again!

Easter Sunday is by far the high point of the Christian calendar. After 40 days of Lent, including the sadness of Good Friday and the waiting of Holy Saturday, Easter Sunday comes like the first ray of sunshine after a long night.

Many of the stories in this edition of Journey explore things that seem a long time coming. Reconciling conflict, overcoming injustice and completing personal challenges can sometimes seem like they will never be resolved. But through the events of Easter there is hope for us and hope for the world around us.

The Christian calendar revolves around Easter and we hear the story often. Let’s not become desensitised to its power. As we celebrate Holy Week by eating chocolate and spending time together, let’s remember the promise contained in this season.

On a side note, we have a letters page this month due to a larger-than-normal response to the March edition. I’d love to make the letters page a regular feature, so please keep sending them in!

Have an eggcellent Easter.
