BigRead13 Day 47 : Resurrection

Day 47’s BigRead13 post can be found here.

Before we get to the formalities of today’s post:

Alleluia! Christ is Risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!

1 John 2:17 for today:

And the world and its desire are passing away, but those who do the will of God live forever.

We’re asked that, as we celebrate, we think about whether we are able to think that there is more to life than this world.

Well, what a question! Lent has been a long time, waiting, praying for an answer to this question.  Today is when it is answered.

The buzz after sundown last night (liturgically today, natch) when we lit the Easter fire and the Exsultet told us that Easter had arrived, that Christ had broken the prison bars of death and risen victorious, when 45 members of God’s church were newly confirmed in the Spirit, and then we made a great noise before launching into a rousing finale of Thine Be The Glory was quite something.  But coming into a Church full of happiness and glory this morning was equally wonderful. Of course there is more to life than this world!

Alleluia! I’m afraid there’s another hymn here that needs to be played loud…
