The celebration of ANZAC Day enables all of us to remember not only the courageous actions of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corp (ANZAC) who fought in the battle of Gallipoli but also to honour those who died on the shores of Gallipoli on that fateful day - on 25 April 1915.

In the past, I have sometimes at Easter written as a Christian to Christians, sometimes to the broader community. On the latter occasions, I’ve tried to find meanings in the Easter celebration for those who don’t believe in Christ, such as the value in coming together as families, celebrating hopefulness in a generalised sort of way or even just taking the opportunity for refreshment that a few days off can afford us. This year, looking around at our nation, I feel I have to try to speak to the community about what the Christians are on about at Easter, what it means to us.
