Happy Easter to you all.
As we celebrate, please, let’s be aware of people around us who do not know what Easter is all about.
The Bible Society have written to tell us that:
a quarter of Britain’s children don’t know that Jesus rose on Easter Day.
4 in 10 children aged 8-15 have never read, seen, or heard about the crucifixion
3 in 10 children do not know that God raised Jesus from the dead.
a quarter of children think that the golden goose is part of the Easter story
98% of Easter eggs have “Easter” taken off the packaging.
What we can do?
-We can speak to the children we know about the Easter story and find out what they know and help them to know the events from the Bible.
-Please pick up one of the First Easter booklets from the Bible Society to give to children. There are also booklets and cards suitable for children or adults in the shop at the back of church.
-Pray for the children of this nation and this town, their families, schools, teachers and contact that we have as a church with them.
-Get some Real Easter eggs to give away. Not only are these Fairtrade chocolate they also have booklets about the Easter story
-Invite families to church- the Fun Food and Faith afternoon may be the most appropriate time, with activities. Please pass on an invitation.
The Bible Society makes the plea, “Don’t let Easter’s message die”. This also means us living lives of faith and witness to our living Lord every day. May His life, peace, joy and hope fill our hearts, so that others can see that our faith is real.
Alleluia, Christ is risen. He is risen indeed, alleluia. Sue
