Experiencing life during the pandemic

The Easter edition of The Anchor has been published by The Anglican Parish of All Saints by the Lake.

The theme in the spring 2021 edition of The Anchor is ‘experiencing life.’

Parishioners have so generously shared stories about various aspects of life during the pandemic. There is no better time than spring and Easter to celebrate life – whether through the joyful birth of a new family member, the relief of being immunized from the corona virus, or the satisfaction that comes from creating a work of art. A parolee in the prison ministry is experiencing new life ‘on the outside.’ Our church bell was tolled, and a cross was set up on the lawn of our church to commemorate those whose lives were disrupted by death. We celebrate the life and ministry of Ven. Gordon Guy who transitioned from time to eternity in February.

We are comforted by the truth that God, through Jesus Christ fully understands our life experiences, having himself lived and witnessed the human journey during his ministry here on earth.

The dark days of Lent have summoned us to look inwardly, as did Jesus in the wilderness. But then, we, like Jesus’ entourage, work through our doubts and fears in faith. Then comes Easter. Just like the resurrected Jesus, nature bursts forth with life, resplendent with the beauty of God’s love.

“What a wondrous time is spring, when all the trees are budding, the birds begin to sing, the flowers start their blooming. That’s how it is with God’s love, once you’ve experienced it, you want to sing it’s fresh like spring, you want to pass it on.”

Extract from the song ‘Pass it on – It only takes a spark’

Have a blessedly happy Easter

Enabling businesses and people to be successful. This is my mission, my life’s work. It’s always been what I have done wherever I’ve been employed, called to serve or to volunteer. An experienced business leader, my core values are truth, integrity, and respect. I believe that values-based leadership is critical for organizational success that is enabled by an engaged and empowered workforce. Working over the years in several senior marketing, communications, and executive leadership mandates for global, financial, healthcare, and non-profit organizations, it has been through times of transformation and difficult change that I have done my best work. In my blog posts, I share my perspectives on leadership, marketing and strategy that are based on my key learnings and observations over the years, all with the objective of helping others reach for success. In my spare time, I enjoy the beauty of nature which I reproduce in my pastel paintings.
