Easter: All Things New!

Spring is a time of renewal and new beginnings and for many cultures around the world, it’s a time to celebrate. From the Christian holiday of Easter, the Jewish holiday of Passover, the ancient Persian festival of Nowruz to the Hindu festival of Holi, the arrival of spring is marked by a variety of traditions that all share a common thread of celebrating new life, restoration and a sense of hope.

Though they have largely become festivals celebrated in secular ways, each of these spring holidays were originally holy days—set apart to commemorate significant, meaningful moments of spiritual renewal. The communal hope for their memory and longevity keeps these ancient holidays in practice today.

Food is central to Easter, as it is to all cultural festivals in every part of the world. In Australia, one of the most popular Easter foods is the hot cross bun. These spiced buns are traditionally made with raisins or currants1 and are marked with a cross on top, symbolising the crucifixion of Jesus. Traditionally these buns were not just enjoyed on Easter Sunday, but also on Good Friday as a way to commemorate the day of Jesus’ death.

Epic Fantasy!

Revelation is filled with High Fantasy. It's worth reading just for the imagery!

Getting into Heaven

You don't get into the Kingdom, the Kingdom gets into you. 
And when it does, everything changes for the better. 
Love takes over and rules from the inside out!

Good vs Evil

It really is this simple. Who will you put first? Yourself? or God and Other People?

How the Gospel Works

John 3:16 - the mustard seed that starts Kingdom growth wherever it is planted!


Thank you:

God, Jesus, the Bible & Us!

The Fall of Lucifer

How Lucifer fell from Heaven...

Cryptic Revelation

The Book of Revelation filled with stories, fantasy and prophecy. 

Why is it written the way it is?

We have a Hero!

Stand behind Jesus. 

He has already won the battle and will defend us until the fighting is finished.
