April Newsletter Letter

“The angel said to them, ‘You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified.  He has been raised…'”.  Mark 16: 6

We’re going to talk a lot about the Resurrection on Easter Sunday morning.  This month is a great month because Easter comes.  We’re going to talk about the Resurrection then, but let me say just a few things now.  About where I see resurrection, new life, good things in this community of Christian faith called Briarwood.

I see resurrection and new life in the recent youth group community scavenger hunt, when 13 youth from Briarwood and the vicinity gathered for here games and prayers.

I see resurrection in the newly formed parents and tots Bible study here on Wednesday mornings, where 3-5 parents with children gather each week for spiritual conversation.

I see resurrection and new life in the 5-8 CEGEP, University and early career-ers that meet twice a month for study, sharing and prayer at the Heusers’ home in Senneville.  Their focus is a C.S. Lewis book and the Gospel of Matthew.

I see resurrection and new life in the relationships of care in the monthly book club, now going on past book #75.

I see resurrection and new life in the 15 children under 10 that enjoyed the children’s program last Sunday.

From Living Faith/Foi Vivante:

“Jesus suffered, died and was buried, but God raised him from the dead.  Risen and ascended, he is alive now, the living Lord.”

Best wishes, and Happy Easter!
