A MESSAGE OF HOPE AND JOY THIS EASTER JODI MCKAY MP
Easter is a time of rebirth, renewal and forgiveness. We celebrate the miracle of the resurrection of Jesus Christ and his promise of eternal life to all people.
Over the last 12 months, our state has been affected by natural disasters and the COVID-19 pandemic.
Family and friends have been kept apart by the virus and many people in NSW have faced job insecurity and loss.
Last year our community was unable to come together. Our churches were restricted in numbers and many congregations across NSW worshipped remotely to keep each other safe and healthy.
We also had caps on house guests which stopped families coming together and spending one of the most popular annual holidays with one another.
This year, we look forward to a more positive and joyful Easter.
It provides us with an opportunity to reflect on what we are grateful for in these times of struggle and what we are looking forward to in the future.
My prayers this Easter are with families across NSW who continue to face hardships during these difficult and uncertain times.
I hope everyone has the opportunity to enjoy a moment of rest.
Happy Easter to you all.
