Something to Think About

Evesham Editorial 12th Apr, 2020   0

ROYALTY, politicians, top NHS surgeons through to the thousands of ordinary people worldwide, the coronavirus is no respecter of persons.

In lockdown we are living in a very unusual and dark time, the like we have never seen before.

But in the midst of the darkness there are so many stories of the acts of people and organisations that are bringing light into so many situations.

We are so thankful to our brilliant NHS staff and subsidiary workers, who so often are putting their own lives at risk in order to attend to those in hospitals with the virus.

This weekend we would normally be celebrating Good Friday and Easter Sunday, which are symbolic of darkness and light.

The darkness of the Crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ when the earth was plunged into total blackness between midday and three o’clock in the afternoon, created the despair of his disciples, who had looked forward to great times with their leader.

Then came that first Easter Day with all the joy, amazement and light as Jesus Christ rose from the dead and defied all those who had put him to death.

In the time that he had been with them, Jesus had told the disciples so often that these happenings would take place, and that they were not to be afraid.

He gave them the message to go back to Galilee where “we will meet again”, and that is what happened.

In her message on Sunday evening, Her Majesty the Queen encouraged us with those very words, “We will meet again”.

Take care, keep safe and keep well.
