Dear members and friends of St. John's Carluke

I hope you are continuing to keep safe and well.

These continue to be difficult and stressful times for all of us as we live through this pandemic.  The word 'hope' characterises what many are feeling right now.  There is hope that we will soon be vaccinated against Covid19 (many have received their first 'jab' and others their second), we hope that the vaccine will work and hope that the pandemic will soon be over. It's been a long, hard run of social isolation and social distancing.  In many ways we are motivated by hope and without it we wither.

Easter stands as a reason to hope.  At Easter we recall the crucifixion of Jesus and his victorious resurrection from the dead.  The crucifixion brings us hope because through it we are assured of forgiveness and reconciliation to God (2 Cor. 5:18-21).  The resurrection gives us hope because it demonstrates God's power over death.  While these are very challenging days to be living, I have no doubt whatsoever that we can come through in victory.  The reason I know that is because of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ over 2,000 years ago!

Easter blessings, in Christ's love,

Yours in Christ,

Rev Dr Elijah Obinna
