    03 April 2016 – What was it like?
    April 1, 2016 Liz Marriott

    Jesus I often wonder what it was like,
    You know
    When your disciples grasped the truth of
    Resurrection?
    Did they believe, at first,
    That it would all be the same again?
    Probably not,
    Mostly because it didn’t feel
    Quite the same.

    Did they wonder,
    What next?
    Of course they did,
    It was such a tremendous shock,
    Let’s be honest,
    A shock,
    And then an amazing
    Unbelievable surprise!
    You were with them!
    Fleetingly admittedly, but there!
    The questions must have
    Flurried and scurried around in their minds:
    What did it all mean?
    What would it mean for them?

    That was then,
    Long ago.

    We, too, need to stop and think-
    What does it mean for us
    Here. Now.

    Living God we try to grasp something of
    The sheer joy and exultation;
    We try to recognise that Resurrection
    Changes everything-
    For us too.

    Each year we are reminded
    Of the sheer force that is
    LIFE-
    The life you give.
    However active or feeble we are
    Your energy runs through our veins
    Changing our precepts,
    Helping us recognise where you need us to be.
    What a privilege that you-
    The Lord of all Creation
    Need us.
    Amen. Hazel Parsons
