Walk the path of the cross with A Gift of Easter

People are being encouraged to reflect anew on the Easter story with the latest publication from the Methodist Church.

Readers of A Gift of Easter will walk a reflective journey from Christ's temptation in the wilderness and triumphal entry into Jerusalem, to the darkness of the cross and the glory of resurrection. This second edition contains brand new images and quotations from classic hymns, alongside Bible readings and prayers that tell the Easter story.

"The road to the cross costs us, but we give of ourselves easily for we give in response to Christ's much greater gift," said the Revd Dr Mark Wakelin, President of the Methodist Conference. "It's a story that speaks hope into the darkest corners of our lives, a story that cries out to be shared."

A Gift of Easter is designed for churches and individuals to give away to their friends, neighbours and communities, but is also ideal for small-group or personal reflection.

The booklets can be purchased from Methodist Publishing at the price of £5 for 50 copies, plus postage and packaging. A free PowerPoint presentation of the booklet will soon be available to download here
