Hope is building for the end of the lockdown, but this past year has been quite a storm.
At Easter we remember the ultimate storm and the ultimate happy ending. This is the pattern: after darkness, then light — after the cross, then the resurrection.
We have produced a special CD to celebrate the hope of Easter. Order your copy from 10 of those here.
If we're feeling trapped, there are two things we need: a friend and a future. Here Glen Scrivener shares with us the Friend who meets us in the darkness
Having met our Friend in the darkness, Glen Scrivener now shares about our future in the light.
Our friends at coronavirussupport.uk are ready to chat now.
What is life, a tragedy or a comedy?
This isn't a question of whether life is hilarious (mostly it's not). It's about whether life is hopeful. A tragedy has joy but it ends in pain — it's shaped like a frown: up and then down. A comedy has pain but it ends in joy — it's shaped like a smile: down and then up. So, what is life, tragedy or comedy?
The world tells you that life is a tragedy. It's full of fun but it ends in the pit. Is there any hope? Easter tells you of a divine comedy. It's the story of the Author entering our great drama, plunging down to the pit and rising up to joy. Could that story be true? Might there be someone who has taken our tragedy to give us his comedy? Read Divine Comedy and find out.

Have you ever noticed the shape of a good story.
First there's a struggle.
A hero comes to the fight to give their all.
But the sacrifice is not futile.
Somehow light triumphs over darkness.
Life wins over death.
What if the story is true?
What if there's a Hero of heroes?
What if Easter is the "myth that really happened?"
We have loads of videos exploring the meaning of Easter, including longer explorations. Take a look!
