Eastertide

Eastertide

Christ is risen!
He is risen indeed! Alleluia!
After the disappearance of Alleluia from the liturgy during Lent, I hope that there was great rejoicing as you celebrated Christ’s resurrection on Easter Day! The mystery of Easter is so great that it can’t be contained in one day – it spills out into 50 days when the Lectionary readings recall the post-resurrection appearances the beginnings of the early church and build towards the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.
It’s a good time to look at how the early church patterned itself (Acts 2:43-47) and talk with your groups about how your church community meets together, breaks bread together, gives generously and praises God. How are the children and young people part of that? What could be done differently?
