Invite to explore promise of peace with Salvos

CHRISTIANS celebrate Easter every year to remember Jesus’ sacrificial love for us – Jesus died on the cross and rose back to life so that all people can experience his goodness, love, hope and peace.

When Jesus lived on Earth, he walked among people experiencing poverty, oppression and disease. He himself experienced rejection, opposition, betrayal, suffering, pain and more.
Our challenges, difficulties and circumstances may look different today, but Jesus understands them.
Before he left Earth, Jesus said to his followers: “I am leaving you with a gift – peace of mind and heart! And the peace I give isn’t fragile like the peace the world gives. So don’t be troubled or afraid” (John 14:27, TLB).
Jesus’ gift of peace is available to us today, if we choose to accept it.
This Easter, the Salvation Army invites you to explore Jesus’ promise of peace for your life.
Attend a local Salvos Easter gathering, download the free eight-day Bible reading and reflection guide or read stories about real people who have experienced Jesus’ peace for themselves.
Easter Sunday is celebrated on March 31, however Easter events begin before Easter Sunday.
Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week and landed on March 24 and Good Friday is on March 29.
Some Christians also practise Lent, which began on February 14.
