Easter 2024

Northgate

31-03-2024 • 31 mins

Easter's narrative isn't just about chocolate eggs and bunnies; it's a profound exploration of hope's triumph over despair. As I stood preaching on that momentous day, the weight of tradition and progress rested on my shoulders, honoring the women who've historically been the heralds of the resurrection story. Through a vibrant recounting of an Easter service, we traverse the emotions stirred by the empty tomb and the transformative impact it has on those who feel buried by life's trials. The concept of "tomb psychology," as introduced by Pope Francis, becomes a focal point, challenging us to rise above the metaphorical graves of our hopes and dreams to embrace the light of new beginnings.

The journey doesn't stop at the empty tomb; it's where it begins anew, with the courage to confront our longest-held pains. We reflect on Mary Magdalene's encounter with Jesus and how it mirrors our own need to face sorrow with authenticity and the hope of understanding. This episode is not just a sermon but an invitation to tap into the resurrection power within, to break free from cycles of suffering, and to step boldly into a legacy of healing. As we weave through these themes, we come to see ourselves as people of hope, bearing the joyous proclamation, "He is risen," into every aspect of our existence.
