Celebrating Easter through Alpha

We just started another Alpha course at Wolf Creek Community Church, which makes me glad.  As you may or may not know, Alpha focuses on the person and work of Jesus.  In fact, during the first session that occurred last night, we talked about the evidence for the resurrection.  During the season of Lent, we sometimes deny ourselves something as we seek to suffer with our Lord during the final weeks of his life on earth.  Through an act of self-denial, we try to take up our cross and follow Jesus.  But during the season of Easter, we add meaningful things to our lives, as we celebrate the new life we have in Christ because of his resurrection.  Adding Alpha has been a good move for our church.  Yes, it has increased the workload of some leaders, including myself, but it’s a joyful burden to bear, as we extend hospitality to each other and community residents, and as we focus on Jesus.  How are you celebrating the resurrection of our Lord as an individual, and also as a church?
