Service Review: 25th March 2018

How to represent the momentous events of Holy Week and convey their significance to our world over 2000 years later?

This is always the challenge for Ministers of whatever Christian denomination at this time of year.

Our visiting Minister, Rev. David Hall, chose to depict them as a 'roller coaster' ride that reached the heights and the depths of emotion (and physical pain) for Jesus and his followers and asked us to compare those events with great sporting moments in history and our own 'ups and downs'.

Things all started so well for Jesus with the triumphant ride in to Jerusalem and we, as a congregation, were invited to experience the joy of that crowd by competing to see who could shout 'Hosanna' the loudest.

But we were then challenged to see what our reaction would have been just a week later when members of the same crowd shouted 'Crucify!'. Which side would we have been on then? At that point none of the crowd could have foreseen the outcome, the Resurrection, an event that changed the history of the world.

Fortunately, we have the benefit of hindsight and we don't have to be judged by history, but we are judged by our actions now. How much do we rejoice at the example and inspiration given by Jesus? He has shown us the way - do we have the courage to follow? If ever there was a time to be inspired by the life of Jesus and the love of God, Easter is surely it!

God Bless us all
