I have written two different set of reflections. The first looks at the events of Holy Week in order asking what was going on at each one. The second considers questions and thoughts that arise out of the Easter story that challenge and encourage me. I have also included some other thoughts, resources and ideas for Easter.
The Events of Holy Week: ‘What was going on?’
You may already know about the events that took place, but have you ever wondered what was really going on? What were all these things really about?
You can read through all of these together or you can use them on each day during Holy week as a series of reflections.
Palm Sunday: Palm Sunday: What was that all about?
Wednesday: A Meal to Remember: What was that all about?
Easter Sunday: Easter Sunday: I’ll be back!
There are also these second set of Blog posts

The things Jesus went through in the days leading up to his death and resurrection are really thought provoking and challenging for us in how we live.

Wednesday: Is Jesus more like a Lion or a Lamb?

As we look at these events in Jesus’ life I hope and pray that we will see more clearly who Jesus is and why he came.
