"What Hasn't Changed"



 We write this to you, conscious that every one of us is affected by the wave of fear triggered by the coronavirus crisis. It’s interesting, though, that the Chinese word for ‘crisis’ is made up of two characters meaning ‘danger’ and ‘opportunity’. Easter is the time when, perhaps more than any other, we celebrate how God can bring new opportunity out of apparent crisis, new hope out of danger or despair and even new life out of death. The Bible tells us that, in Jesus, God shared in our humanity so that - by his death - he might destroy the power of death and free those who were held in the fear of death (Hebrews 2:14-15). The fear of death has certainly been unmasked in recent weeks, but - even more wonderfully than the many good things that are emerging as communities learn to pull together again - Easter reminds us that we can all be freed from that terrible fear of death when we place our trust in the only one who can defeat it. What incredible hope that brings! It’s our prayer that you can embrace it and so know the power of God’s love this Easter.
