In our world scarred by war, violence, extremism and hatred, Good Friday brings a time of reflection for Christians to remember the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross and Easter brings hope for a new and renewed life.
In the ‘Good Friday Walk of Witness’ different Churches Together groups in Luton carried a cross and walked from one church to the other, offering prayers for all.
In a walk led by Bury Park Beech Hill Council of Churches, Karen Campbell, church related community worker, recited her own poem titled “was it worth it?”.
She encouraged that the love Jesus showed on the cross must turn our reflections into actions in enabling life and hope to flow in abundance for everyone.
On Easter Day Jesus rose again and it marked the end of his journey on earth: now we must continue our journey of challenging injustices and touching lives, with a self-giving love, just as Jesus did.
