Easter is one of the most significant times in the church calendar, as the time that we celebrate that Jesus not only died for us, but that he also conquered death and rose again. For many Christians, we can sometimes forget the significance of this act as we retell the story year after year. Below are some suggestions for resources to help you engage with the Easter story in a fresh way and remember the significance of Jesus' sacrifice.
Sealed: An Easter Devotion
Women’s Ministries has produced a six-part devotional series based around some themes of Easter. Each one takes you through a different part of the Easter story with a short reading, including some insights and questions to encourage reflection. Use it as a personal devotion or as something to go through with others. Check it out here.
