Reflections on spending Easter in isolation…

People all around the globe experienced a different kind of Easter this year. With most countries in lockdown, a time usually spent with family and friends was reduced to virtual contact.
For Christians, Easter isn’t just about chocolate eggs and a long weekend, although these things are fantastic in their own right. For us, it’s about Jesus and His miraculous gift to us; the gift of everlasting life and love.
Personally, I love spending Easter with my family and friends. I love going to church to worship and praise Him, spending time in prayer reflecting on and thanking Him for His gift to us. So in a way Easter this year wasn’t that different – I went to church (via Zoom) and was still able to worship and pray.
But it didn’t feel the same.
I missed doing this with people.
My faith, and that of most people, thrives on community. Being able to glorify God in community is special. And I have missed this more than I thought I would. It didn’t make Easter any less of a celebration, but it did make me realise just how powerful community is and how much I appreciate my family of faith.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter this year, no matter what it looked like for you.
Matthew 18:20 ‘For where two or three gather in my name, there I am with them’
Peace and love,
