8.30am & 10am
Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said….
Matthew’s account captures this as the first word that the resurrected Jesus says to the women on their way. It’s enough to give us shivers. Resurrection, never been done before, what’s the first thing said to some old friends? A simple ordinary word, that is all about them and not about him. ‘Greetings’, followed by the obligatory ‘Do not be afraid’ (because of course they were!).
You are so welcome to come and join in celebrating Easter, if you have come before, if you have never entered the space before, if the place is familiar but unseen for a while, you are so very welcome to come and rejoice on this day, the culmination of the Christmas story and the beginning of the rest of history.
