Living the resurrection

I  was just thinking during the service this morning of what the practical implications are for me, and for each of us, in the coming week, of the fact that Jesus rose from death, that Jesus is alive. Here are some of the ones I thought of: We do not need to fear death because Jesus has conquered death Jesus, through his Spirit will accompany us through this week whatever it brings us of joy or of darkness In times of difficulty, we need not despair

Gold at the end of the rainbow

A report and reflection on this morning's Easter Sunday service by John Dempster We’d a lovely Easter Sunday all-age service this morning at Hilton. The first thing we saw when we went in the door was the big wooden cross in front of the congregation covered with candles and daffodils, no longer threatening. Duncan spoke about the role of colour in communicating a message, and the fact that we attach different colours to varying moods and experiences.

The darkness before the dawn

‘This is the time of day that is worse than night.’  A poignant line from John Betjeman’s poem Five o’clock shadow. The poet is in bed in a hospital ward, alone with his fears.

For Jesus’s followers the Sabbath following his crucifixion would have been a day worse than night. After the crisis and

‘I love these people’

A personal reflection from John Dempster on last night's communion and footwashing service at the Lighthouse: Anyone seeing what was on the tables at the Lighthouse last night may have been a little intrigued at what we were doing. We were sitting with plates in front of us on which Jonathan and Eilidh had placed unleavened bread, and parsley, small cubes of lamb, sweet and bitter spices, hard boiled egg, and a little container of salty water. There
