Dear Friends,

As we move into the season of spring we look for brighter days ahead. It can often be difficult to keep a balanced perspective when we are faced with difficulties and challenges such as Coronavirus.

It is at times such as these when we need a plumb line in our lives, a measuring stick, that helps us to weigh up all the things we see going on around us. The Old Testament book of Amos perhaps seems an unlikely place at first to seek advice, but it gives us hope as we look to the future of Easter. Amos lived 750 years before the birth of Jesus yet heard God foretell the coming of the Messiah: ”See, I am setting a plumb line in the midst of my people” (Amos 7:8).

Let us not lose hope as we journey through the darkness of Good Friday and sadness of Easter Eve, that Easter Sunday is coming, Jesus has risen, He is our plumb line and He will be our strength, guide and companion in whatever might come.

I wish you all a blessed and peace filled Easter.
