Cracking The Easter Egg

AMC Easter cross 2017 2

During her Easter morning family service, Rev. Helen Kirk made passing mention of The National Trust's controversial decision to drop the word 'Easter' from its annual egg hunt.

The proviso is, that just as the egg has to be cracked to make scrambled egg, or be part of other dishes, we need to be 'cracked' from our status quo if we are to contribute more fully to a better world.
A further symbol of the potential transforming love of God, was the decoration of the bare cross with flowers, by members of the congregation..
