Hope overcoming fear is message of Easter sermon

In the shadow of the Brussels bombings, the Archbishop of Canterbury spoke of hope overcoming fear in his Easter Day sermon.
Preaching at Canterbury Cathedral, the Most Revd Justin Welby said: “Fear is reasonable, a normal human reaction. This week has shocked all of us, and risks causing us to act fearfully, to see a world in which fear triumphs. Easter proclaims to us in flesh and blood that fear and death and terror are not the last words. God has spoken life, hope and purpose. Terror speaks of a world at war with itself, of Faiths at each others’ throats. Jesus Christ reaches out not in exclusion but in embrace, this is the feast of the victory of God, and we celebrate in the midst of darkness, by our worship and praise shining an unquenchable light.”
