Easter At St Thomas A Becket, Lewes

Easter Message

From the Rectory ….

Dear Friends

Alleluia! He is risen!…He is risen indeed, Alleluia!

 This declaration and response is recited in most Christian congregations around the world on Easter Sunday. Jesus’ death and resurrection is the foundation of its faith ; indeed, as St Paul says, “If Christ has not been raised, our faith is in vain”

(1 Corinthians 15.17) St Paul goes on to say that “for as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive” (1 Corinthians 15.22). Our earthly life is one of our finiteness and death, but through Christ comes our resurrection from the dead and the gift of eternal life.

We can exult with this in mind and truly sing those words of praise.

Alleluia! He is risen!…He is risen indeed, Alleluia!

All good wishes and a very Happy Easter.       Richard

Rector of Lewes
