This year’s Easter theme is “Cross and Crown”, taking our cue from Matthew’s telling of Jesus’ final week on earth. We meet a series of paradoxes in this familiar story: suffering and victory, shame and glory, weakness and power, among others.
There’s a line from King’s Kaleidoscope in one of their songs, which seems relevant here: “Why am I down on the way up?” I think they’re trying to capture how following Jesus can sometimes feel as though it’s getting worse before it gets better, or harder before it gets easier. One thing we learn from the Easter story is that this is the trajectory of Jesus himself, so it makes sense that we would experience it also.
Are you able to relate to the paradoxes of life? Then Easter is for you.
