Easter a time for cel­e­bra­tion

Central and North Burnett Times - - EASTER 2014 -

EASTER is around the cor­ner and will pro­vide an ideal time for fam­i­lies to come to­gether and cel­e­brate their faith.

The sig­nif­i­cant Chris­tian cel­e­bra­tion is one of the best-at­tended church ser­vices of the year, with fam­i­lies com­ing to­gether to com­mem­o­rate the res­ur­rec­tion of Je­sus.

Lit­tle Arwen Hull, aged five months, will cel­e­brate her first Easter at the New Life Cen­tre in Mun­dub­bera.

Arwen’s grand­mother, Bon­nie Tre­van­ion, was ex­cited about Arwen’s first Easter and said it would be “very much about our fam­ily and a cel­e­bra­tion of our faith”.

While Easter is about Christ’s cru­ci­fix­ion, wor­ship would fo­cus on his res­ur­rec­tion, which pro­vided the foun­da­tion of Chris­tian­ity.

Ms Tre­van­ion said Easter was not nec­es­sar­ily a solemn oc­ca­sion, but rather a chance to re­joice.

“What greater love is there than a god who gave his son and then raised him back from the dead so that all could be saved,” she said.

“There is noth­ing that we can do to sep­a­rate God’s love for us.”

Ms Tre­van­ion is a wor­ship leader at the church and liked how mu­sic was part of the ser­vice.

She said Arwen en­joyed go­ing to wor­ship and “rocked on to the mu­sic”.

“Mu­sic speaks to people and has been proven to trig­ger all parts of the brain,” Ms Tre­van­ion said.

“Mu­sic is a very im­por­tant part of ev­ery ser­vice, no mat­ter what de­nom­i­na­tion you are in.”
