Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!  The Lord Jesus is risen.  

We spent past 40 days of Lent with sorrow, pain, fear and anger in Japan after the massive earthquake and tsunami on 11 March.  Many people are still struggling to restore their everyday life and, still, many victims of tsunami are missing.  The nuclear power plant in Fukushima is still in critical condition and so many people have been forced to evacuate from their homes.  In fact, the incident in the nuclear power plant poses quite ethical question on us who have been benefited from the abundant supply of electricity to maintain our modern life style.  Are we ethically correct to use such amount of electricity produced by nuclear power plant which causes such a massive and long term damage over people's lives and environment once it went to out of control?  Are we ethically correct to use such a power plant which produces not only electricity but huge amount of contaminated waste which the future generations would be in charge to manage?  We are still in darkness.

Because of this situation in Japan, this year's Easter celebration was really meaningful for many as brightness of small fire on a candle reminded us shining hope of Jesus who is risen from the dead.  He is the one who will give us hope for new life.  He is the one who will make us rise from complete destruction.  He is the one who will show us the way for life.

We are all grateful to you from all over the world for your kind prayer, messages and donations to support victims in Japan.  Through your action, we are made aware that we are all part of the one body, Jesus Christ.  God bless you all.
