The Redcliffe Explorers: Jesus and the God of Easter
Jesus told the world what the world thought unbelievable – that God is kind, humble, compassionate, forgiving, just, non-violent, peaceful, faithful and enduring. Jesus discovered that the God of what we call Easter, has a name. That name is Love.
On Monday 4 April Rev Dr Lorraine Parkinson and the Redcliffe Explorers invite you to an Easter liturgy for this time and this troubled world. Through beautiful music and imagery, and quiet reflection, we will trace Jesus’ courageous journey through Palm Sunday, Good Friday, Easter Saturday and Easter Day.
We’ll meet in the Activities Room at Azure Blue Retirement Centre (91 Anzac Ave., Redcliffe) at 6 p.m. The Centre management requires that we’re all fully Covid-vaccinated, and the usual arrangements of mask-wearing, hand-sanitising etc. will apply. If you’d like to come along but aren’t a regular at our gatherings or are not on our e-mail list, it would be advisable to give me a call on 0401 513 723 about access and parking arrangements at the Centre.
ZOOM IN on Sunday 27th March when Rev Drs Greg Jenks, David Cohen, Lorraine Parkinson and Rod Pattenden will discuss the new Westar Institute publication AFTERLIVES: Jesus in Global Perspective in a Zoom session (link below) starting at 3 p.m. Queensland time. The three-volume set (edited by Greg Jenks) contains an international collection of essays exploring the impact of Jesus within and beyond Christianity, including his many ‘afterlives’ in literature and the arts, social justice and world religion during the past 2,000 years and especially in the present global context.
