Covid-19 got us missing our offices, but not everything about our office. We don’t miss jamming photocopiers! We were hoping that 2021 would be the re-boot year. Could Easter be the reboot we are looking for? Easter shows us the world is messed up. It allows us to understand the world beyond what ‘mother nature’ throws at us. Easter reminds us that Jesus Christ the Son of God comes into our world of pain, hurt and suffering to meet people who are sick and diseased and broken. And he grieves with them. He’s angry at religious hypocrites. But he brings love, justice and hope to the world. He dies for us! Take some time this Easter to pause, understand and reflect on how Easter can be our own rebirth, our own reboot. The very answer to what we are looking for in a re-boot.
How Easter can give you the reboot you're looking for
