From the Newsletter: April 4th 2010

Our thanks go to all who participated and helped in organising our Easter Ceremonies.

Risk is usually associated with live-threatening stunts or gambling on the stock market. Risk-takers act in absurdly dangerous ways. Their economic future or life itself can be on the line. So, a bit of safety tempers risk. The prudent person can hedge a risk. The wise person mixes safety with risk, chance with certitude.
Yet, many risks cannot be tempered. Some events in life can take us beyond a point of no return. The choice between safety and risk are clear. The risk to reputation, place in society, and life itself cannot be denied.Faith in the resurrection was one of those risks for early Christians. People gossiped about and plotted against those who held Jesus rose from the dead. The idea was so absurd and laughable, non-Christians thought, that those who believed should be ridiculed and shunned. Even persecuted. But that did not stop the faithful from spreading a message that shocked the world.
