Welcome to A Resurrection Journey

This online tool has been created by the Anglican Diocese of Auckland to help us focus and reflect on the resurrection of Jesus Christ and what his risen life means for us today.

The project was originally created and coordinated by The Reverend Sarah Park (former diocesan Ministry Educator). It arose out of a sense that Anglicans do a great job of observing Lent but are not so good at celebrating Easter.

Sarah says, “But Easter is more than just one day. We run the risk of liturgical imbalance and a skewed view of humanity and God if we focus heavily on Lent without also focussing on the resurrection life of Easter.”

This calendar is one attempt to redress this balance. It begins on Palm Sunday, journeys through Holy Week to Easter Day and continues right up to Pentecost.

A shorter version of each day’s posts will also be available on Facebook. To get notifications every day, bring up the page, click ‘Following’ and select ‘See first’ so posts from the calendar don’t get lost in your newsfeed.
