I have had to become used to using social media. It is a tool for sharing about me and my books, but I don’t always like it. I wanted so much to share about the real meaning of Easter this year, but I had to come up with a way of doing it that didn’t alert the anti-Christian algorithms. After all , what’s the point of sharing my faith if nobody sees the posts?
So I thought outside of the box a bit, and decided to be subtle. To draw people in with everyday images and thoughts, rather than the overtly Christian ones that you might normally see at this time of the year. I don’t know how successful they have been, but they have been seen. By hundreds of people I don’t know. These are the images and words I have posted over the last few days. What do you think?
THE LAST SUPPER
You’ve planned a celebratory dinner. And invited all your closest friends.
You know one of them has already gone behind you back to the authorities
And the others will turn their backs on you when it all kicks off….
But still you laugh with them and love them to the end
( JOHN 13)
We all need those places we can escape to
Places where we can breathe, rest, listen, find peace
Until they are forever tainted by anguish and betrayal
The verdict handed down. Guilty goes free, innocence condemned
Hate wins. But Love triumphs!
Innocence condemned so that the guilty can go free!
Today the story will be slightly less subtle. I want to shout it from the rooftops, but this will have to do. My Redeemer LIVES!
She didn’t come to put flowers on Your grave, or to see the gardener
She came, shrouded in grief, and found an empty tomb. A discarded shroud
A familiar voice?
Fear fled, hope ignited, and NEW LIFE began.
