"Moving Forward United in Faith, Hope and Love"

Pastor Andrea Davidson

   Easter declares that the walls of death are not strong enough to prevail against the power of Life.
 
And yet the realities of our lives – financial struggles, physical ailments, familial challenges – overwhelm us, so that we find it hard to believe this announcement of good news and of triumph over despair. Perhaps, part of our challenge is that we expect Easter to come in an uncomplicated manner, with an un-costly kind of joy. The gospels however, portray responses to resurrection ranging from sadness, shock and awe to fear and trembling. The first disciples found it hard to see and understand the implications of the ultimate victory of Love incarnate.
