Easter was away time for family and I.
This Easter it was at Blackheath Anglican Church.
After recent experiences of both 'Anglo-Baptist' and regular Baptist services, this one was a relief.
In fact, it was wonderful.
We gave the Easter greeting, said the confession, read Psalm 51 and John 21, had prayers, said the Lord's Prayer together, also the Apostles' Creed. We were dismissed with the blessing: "Go in peace to love and serve the Lord."
Does it sound like all the routine stuff? Words that one can let glide over one's head?
But I listen to it and want to take it in. It also reminds me of the millions of Christians now and through history who have been similarly reminded of our faith across space and over time.
