I was inspired by these Easter reflections from Bishop Emma Ineson of the Church of England’s Diocese of Penrith, written in the midst of lockdown caused by the intense UK coronavirus variant. She writes: “Christian hope is not the same as incessant cheerfulness or even optimism. Christian hope is not reliant on flawed human feelings. The answer to the disciples on the Emmaus road was not found in their will power or way power, because they were pretty powerless in both respects. Their hope came in the form of a person: Jesus, risen from the dead, and made known to them in the broken bread.” You can read it all here.
