A quote from the "Easter People" blog has captured our imagination and has inspired our worship focus from Easter to Pentecost.
"If Lent is a time to give things up, Easter ought to be a time to take things up. If Calvary means putting to death things in your life that need killing off if you are to flourish as a Christian and as a truly human being, then Easter should mean planting, watering, and training up things in your life (personal and corporate) that out to be blossoming, filling the garden with color and perfume, and in due course bearing fruit."
What are the things that Jesus calls us to plant and water in our lives as we live into the new life made possible through Easter? During our worhsip from now until May 15, we will be looking at passages from the Gospel according to John with this question in mind.
