For Reuben Watt, Moderator of the United Reformed Church Youth Assembly, Easter Sunday would normally consist of eating lots of chocolate and hot cross buns, spending time with his extended family, going for a walk or doing an Easter egg hunt and, of course, attending church in Reigate. In this reflection for Easter Sunday, Reuben explains what he will be doing instead and the true meaning of Easter.
For all of us this year, gathering at church will not be possible. Instead we can listen to or watch one of the many URC live services or recordings or take part in the Daily Devotions’ digital Sunday services.
I am sure that many of us have experienced many sermons and reflections that look at the Easter story, but at a time where we are all in lockdown, is it worth just looking at the basics of what the Easter story really is about?
