Reverend Suzanne Matale said Easter is a sign of love which the Lord himself express by sending his only son Jesus Christ to die for humanity.
‘It is with great pleasure that we as a Council of Churches in Zambia (CCZ) join the Christian fraternity in celebrating this years’ Easter, as we remember the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ,’ Reverend Matale said.
She added, ‘I would like to remind all Zambians that this period comes with an opportunity for each one of us to reflect on the relationship with God and with one another especially in light of the post-election atmosphere.’
‘As we celebrate Easter, we must to put aside any differences, whether political or tribal or personal and pursue reconciliation to embrace one another.’
Reverend Matale continued, ‘As we celebrate the resurrection of our lord Jesus Christ, may his resurrection as believers interpret into new beginnings for us as individuals and the country in the quest of moving forward for the betterment of our lives.’
‘I would like to advise all people in Zambia to observe this period with high caution of dangers that might arise associated with the excitement such as substance abuse. It is our plea to all Zambians to refrain from all activities that will endanger their lives by focusing on living a Christ like life.’
