A big thank you to all who have worked so hard to bring us to this blessed day. Easter is a time of new beginnings and, after the year we have had, we look on with hope that the lives of all will know newness and Resurrection.
My thanks also to Jill for the super work regarding our Holy Week booklet and Amanda as the Zoom host right through our services. Today, at Naseby, our service will be streamed, which will give you the chance to be there ‘live’ whilst worship is taking place and/or the opportunity to worship at an-other time. (Visit http://www.broomhillhyndlandchurch.co.uk/live/ to access the live streaming service.)
In our prayers that reach far and wide, we remember the funeral of Celia Thompson which took place at the Linn Crematorium on Thursday.
The late, great actress and comedienne Elaine Stritch, in her one-woman show Elaine Stritch at Liberty, tells a lovely story about a five-year old ac-tor called Brandon De Wilder. It’s opening night for a Broadway show. All the grown-up actors are in their respective dressing rooms, shaking in their boots. Opening night is a big deal on Broadway. The stage manager calls over the tannoy, “Places!” A door opens and little Brandon comes out of his dressing room, skipping down the hall, knocking on all the grown-up actors’ doors and shouting out in excitement, “It’s time! It’s time!”
Easter comes. It’s time to open the doors. It’s time to let the light in. It’s time to meet Jesus.
Happy Easter !
