Because Jesus is alive... 



There are 50 days between Easter and Pentecost.
For the first disciples that meant 50 days of celebrating the truth that Jesus is alive, and expecting the promised Holy Spirit.
Starting on Easter Day.60. He is risen

The invitation is for you to complete this sentence in whatever way is real and meaningful for you, so that as we move from Easter to Pentecost we can celebrate the reality of Jesus’ resurrection together as we share the difference the truth that Jesus is alive has made to us.

So – we are looking for 50 contributors…. Will you be one of them? What will you say?
