As Christians, we know that Easter is just around the corner. But we’re not there yet.
It is very tempting to rush past Good Friday to Easter Day. Holy Saturday is
characterised by silence, absence and hope. The invitation is to sit with the discomfort
of all that has happened on Good Friday, with the hope of Easter as yet unrealised.

Each Saturday in this calendar you are invited to undertake a prayer practice called
The Examen. Click here to learn about it and here to be led through The Examen.
God of opportunity and change,
praise to you for giving us life at this critical time.
As our horizons extend, keep us loyal to our past;
as our dangers increase, help us to prepare the future;
keep us trusting and hopeful,
ready to recognise your kingdom as it comes.
