The resurrection of Jesus Christ is certainly the most important event within the Christian faith.

It provides hope and assurance that we can also receive eternal life.

Yesterday, Christians from various denominations marched through Suva City singing the renowned gospel number, ‘He is risen, come on and celebrate the resurrection of our Lord’.

The march ended with a concert of drama, action choruses, singing, sharing and reflection at Ratu Sukuna Park with the theme of ‘Rise with Christ: A Vision of Hope for the Future’. People came together in the hope that Fijians would rise with Christ after the devastation of the Cyclone Winston.

Ecumenical Centre for Research, Education and Advocacy (ECREA) chairperson Reverend Cliff Bird said it was imperative for people to understand the sacrifice Jesus made.

“His everlasting love for us was evident on that day and that was when He gave us his son to die on the cross so that you and I can be redeemed,”Reverend Bird said.

“It was through his crucifixion that you and I are able to witnesses a new day despite the ongoing challenges that we go through in our daily lives,”he said.

This is the 3rd Ecumenical Easter Concert hosted by ECREA and the Fiji Council of Churches (FCC).

The concert brings together Christian churches in the greater Suva area to celebrate the resurrected Christ and affirm the most important event in the Christian calendar.
