To mark Palm Sunday and the start of Holy Week, the Archdeacon of Macclesfield, Ian Bishop, shares a sermon in which he thanks people for their energy and enthusiasm in the face of the current restriction. He also warns that if government predictions are right, Easter could mark one of the darkest days for many.
However, Archdeacon Ian reminds us that in Jesus Christ there is hope for our world and it should live in all the people of faith. He says: "We're the resurrection people and through the pain of the days ahead we have, as Jesus had, a hope that is born in the promise of eternal resurrection life."
The sermon was recorded at Ian's home earlier in the week.
