Some pictures from a morning with Newry circuit as we celebrated Easter morning with breakfast and worship - thanks to Lorna and the team

Something I quoted in Newry this morning from Rev George Macleod. The impact of the resurrection must take us away from our cathedrals to cities.

Rethink lent photo is back

One of the great joys of Easter is its message of Hope. This is something which Christians around the world instinctively understand.
They know that they are called to live their lives in such a way as to offer a glimpse of this Hope to those around them.
As Christian live in the light of the Resurrection they are challenged to contributes to communities based on respect,dignity, equality, justice and peace.

Today was a very sad day. Driving to take part in funeral service of Adrian Ismay, listening to the radio tell the story of the mayhem and murder unfolding in Brussels. Then at Issi's funeral one could not but think that his death was needless. The to watch the TV screens picture 5 hearses bring a family home to loved ones.

Hopeless yet the bravery of Davitt Walsh, the courage of Issi's family, particularly his wife Sharon and the determination of the people of the battered city of Brussels, encourage us to keep going.

Terrible tragic event in Buncrana tonight, our prayers are with the family and the emergency services

How encouraging to see how the Methodist people, along with other Christians provided a fun place for the people in Killarney celebrating St Patricks day.

What I appreciated was that shared their gift through generosity of tea, coffee, and bouncy castle, but they also were also handing out tracks, singing hymns etc and telling of Jesus love, intentionally.
