Contemplation and Celebration
The Easter season is a significant time of both contemplation and celebration. In the days leading up to Easter we contemplate the road that Jesus walked in obedience, culminating in the sacrifice of his life on behalf of humanity. When we come to Easter we celebrate the miracle both of the resurrection of Jesus and the hope of new life that it brings us.
Our yearly Easter devotional provides the opportunity for us to walk through Holy Week (Palm Sunday to Easter) in a unified way across all of our churches. The daily readings and reflections are written by our pastors and leaders with representation across all three of our expressions.
The Creator's Sacrifice
We are excited to share this Holy Week resource with you, and pray that it will serve as a tool to help you pause, reflect and remember the significance of this Easter season.
In partnership with The Indigenous Christian Fellowship, we have showcased a series of beautiful paintings entitled The Creator’s Sacrifice by Ovide Bighetty. The selected images and related scripture for each day were used as inspiration by our BIC authors, as they worked to craft the daily prayers, reflections and guiding questions. Each day weaves several spiritual practices together, including Lectio Divina, meditation, contemplation and prayer.
