Easter

Easter Day celebrations are the best and truest.
To join with others. To be caught up in the joy of Jesus is the best thing!

And here’s a prayer written for our Easter Day, evening worship….

“When everything was dark
and it seemed that the sun would never shine again,
your love broke through.
Christ is risen!

Your love was too strong,
too wide,
too deep
for death to hold.
Christ is risen!

The sparks cast by your love
dance and spread
and burst forth
with resurrection light.
Christ is risen!

Gracious God,
We praise you for the light of new life
made possible through Jesus.
We praise you for the light of new life
that shone on the first witnesses of resurrection.
We praise you for the light of new life
that continues to shine in our hearts today.
For Christ is risen!

We pray that the Easter light of life, hope and joy,
will live in us each day;
and that we will be bearers of that light
into the lives of others.
Because Christ is risen, Amen.”
