In his life, Jesus announced that God was about to redeem the world, including the likes of you and me. On the first Easter, when the women found the tomb of Jesus empty, they knew the redeeming had begun.
And continues still. On Easter Sunday at Christ Church, we unleash the joy, beauty and hope of God’s creation, and proclaim that the promise of the world’s redemption is still as real and present now as on the first Easter. Easter at Christ Church is a gift to ourselves and to a world too full of fear, anxiety, and violence.
How I look forward to sharing in that glory with you on Easter. Because we are at worship on Easter, Christ Church will continue to be a place of transcendence, beauty, challenge and hope.
In sure and certain hope of God’s redemption, I remain gratefully yours,
The Rev. Timothy B. Safford, Rector
Going and Getting to Gloucester Mass. for May 13
The entire Christ Church congregation is invited to the Open House at CB Fisk Organ Builders on Saturday, May 13. You don't want to miss seeing the organ in its final stages of fabrication, and to hear Parker play it for the first time. But we need to know if you are at least interested so we can develop the options for travel and lodging that are not too costly. If you want to make your own plans, we can get you locations and nice places to stay in the area. But, be in touch! Email Cecilia Wagner for more details and to tell her your possible participation,
