Lent is upon us! Traditionally, people are in the habit of giving things up for Lent – how are you getting on?
More importantly, are you finding that Lent is a time when you can reserve a bit of time out with God?
It’s so important that we don’t just squeeze God into the leftover time and Lent gives us an annual opportunity to get our priorities right.
To help people do that we are repeating our Easter Experience this year – a chance to come on your own or with a friend and reflect on the last week of Jesus’ life. We have 10 ‘stations’ this year and simply ask questions to aid quiet reflection. The idea is that everyone goes at their own pace. Last year over 100 people enjoyed the experience – check out the details to see when you might be able to take advantage of that. The times of our Easter services will be announced soon.
Art Deco has come and gone – what a wonderful experience that is every year with so many people taking part. It reminds us that everyone doing their part makes such an impact – there’s a lesson to learn there! And, of course, it reminds us that we have much to be grateful for after such a disastrous event and so much hard work to pick Napier up and move on. The Christchurch February earthquake was 4 years ago this year and our thought and prayers go out to them as they continue to pick up the pieces.
If you are going through a shakey time in your own life at the moment be assured of our support and help anytime you should need it – we’re only a phone call away and God is only a prayer away!
