It never ceases to amaze me how fast time goes and we find ourselves looking back and realising that much of the year has passed in a flash. The Christian year is very busy between March and June with the Lenten season followed by Easter, then Ascension and finally Pentecost. Each period has a very special meaning to us as we go through the final days of Jesus’ life on earth. Lent is a good time for self examination and it is often a time when we grow in our spirituality and our relationship with our Lord. The celebration of Easter with all its joy is the high point of the year as we come to the moment when Jesus died and rose again, paying the penalty of our own sinfulness and then going on to conquer death and, indeed, Satan. No longer does the devil have a hold over us. We are liberated into new life in Christ.
