Easter Sunday

Today is a very special day for Christians throughout the world. On a Friday that seemed anything but good it all seemed over but then on Sunday morning πŸŒ„ there was an empty tomb. A desolate but then thrilled woman talking to someone more than the gardener. A bunch of frightened men hiding from the authorities transformed by seeing the risen Christ.

Easter. Tragedy into triumph. Love conquering all. Forgiveness and hope. 11 of the 12 disciples would later die for this belief. And many Christians around the world take a huge risk of rejection, suffering and even death because they believe in the one who conquered death.

Thanks for your support for your worldwide family. You help bring light into dark places with your donations.

I am now two thirds of my way through the 60@60 challenge. 41 of the 60 challenges done; 64% of money raised though only one donation in the last few weeks. But God knows…My latest activities were making Indian Gulab Jumun (the last Lent food challenge) and visiting a windmill.

May you have a special Easter and know the hope of the resurrected Christ.

And finally, a lockdown version of an old song whose chorus sums up what so many persecuted Christians ✝️ experience.

Turning 60 is a door to a new decade. I want to use these years positively, starting with the next one. So I want it to be a year of trying different things as well as familiar one and to do a couple of challenges. 60 things at 60 with the aim of raising Β£6 000 for the charity Open Doors, serving persecuted Christians around the world, many who live with very little. Would you be part of the adventure with me?
