We are Resurrection People!
We have been living in a difficult period. Covid has claimed many lives, and while the numbers being infected are decreasing, we will be feeling the aftereffects for some time. We are also facing up to our need to acknowledge the racism that adversely affects so many of our brothers and sisters. Add climate change and a host of other issues and it is easy to despair as we look at the world around us. Now more than ever, we need to remember that we are people of the resurrection and that our God is always with us.
