ALIVE! Easter 2022

This Easter, we're sharing stories from our women, and how Jesus is alive in them today. But let's start at the beginning, as Mary stands near the cross where Jesus is being put to death ...
Alive: Stories of our women

 

At Easter, we celebrate the sacred moment when human history changed forever, through the death and resurrection of Jesus. 

In the week before Easter, we traditionally celebrate Palm Sunday, which commemorates the day Jesus came into Jerusalem, while crowds proclaimed, 'Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord,' (John 12:13).

Did you know that 'Hosanna' and 'Jesus' both have the same root meaning 'to save'? Hosanna means 'please save us' And Jesus means 'healer, rescuer or saviour'. Jesus is revealed is the answer to our prayers for healing and salvation.

Those who belong to the Christian faith, believe that Jesus has saved us through his death and resurrection. The word 'salvation' - or 'sozo' in the original greek - not only means to be saved from destruction; it also means to be healed and made whole. 

This Easter, we are sharing stories of our women who have lived through the darkness and found new life in Jesus. They are living stories of how Jesus is still alive in us and healing us today. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
