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
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.
