Easter Paddle Out
There is a tradition among surfers (especially in Hawaii),that when a surfer dies, they paddle out with those Hawaiian flowers, form acircle in the water, say a few words of remembrance and then leave flowersfloating on the surface of the water.
The death of Jesus affords us that opportunity. But for uswe know it is not the end and we can remember in HOPE. Easter also affords theopportunity to go beyond just theology and doctrine (orthodoxy) to actualpractise (orthopraxy). The paddle affords us the opportunity to be theresurrection! To be the place of hope! For those who have a faith Jesus and forthose who don't it offers an opportunity to express and explore HOPE. It is agreat way to reflect on the loss of loved ones and/or just loss (hardships etc)and yet be inspired towards HOPE.
So do come along Sunday 4 April, 7 am at hot-pipes (Brighton)
