The President and Vice-President of the Methodist Conference, the Revd Dr Roger Walton and Ms Rachel Lampard MBE, speak about confidence, suffering and hope in this year's Easter Message.
"...Do we sometimes race over the reflection of holy week and the pain of Good Friday, in order to reach the joy of Easter?...The Christian vocation means feeling and facing the suffering and injustice of the world, alongside God, until new creation is complete. Staying with suffering and tackling injustice is no easy option but is where Christian confidence takes us..." We are all challenged to take that Christian confidence of God's love for all and the transforming power of that love into our thinking and actions this Easter and beyond.
