Cracking The Easter Egg

Home » News » 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. This has caused some consternation amongst its members. Traditionally, it was called the Easter Egg Trail but this year the Trust have renamed it Cadbury's Great British Egg Hunt..
More important though, thought Helen, was the egg being the universal symbol of new life. Just as the Easter story tells of Christ's resurrection, we can all be resurrected from old ways to better ways. 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..
