Easter 2012 Message from Bishop Jones “The Lord has really Risen! He has appeared to Peter.” (Lk 24:32)

easterThe past is over and the future has yet to come. We cannot but live in the “now” of this particular year - 2012. We have war from Afghanistan to Africa. People want and go hungry in countries rich and poor. Nations like our own are bowed down under the yoke of economic woes. Violence on our streets and heartbreak in our homes is common. Our church stands in need of renewal. Loved ones have left our shores in search of work. Friends or family may have been diagnosed with difficult illnesses. For some the loss and mourning of a loved one has marked the months gone by. Yet it is into each and every one of these 2012 situations, that this year, the Easter Message is proclaimed just as it has been since that first Easter morning. Proclaimed with vigour by Christian people everywhere - “The Lord has really Risen! He has appeared to Peter.” (Lk 24:32)
