Happy He Done Got Back Up Day, Easter 2011


"Lord of Life, this is the morning that changed the world. This is a celebration of our joyful refusal to give death the last word. This is the power of life to swallow up death, of hope to triumph over despair, of presence to provide its own proof. This is the moment when we trust beyond our own capacity that the long arc of history bends towards justice, not hatred. This is the day for turning our faces toward the light. and for hearing the ancient promise that we have inherited. He is risen! And that means we must rise also. Easter is not a spectacle. It is an assignment, calling us to be Easter People. In the name of the risen Christ we pray, all of us running frightened from the empty tomb. Amen." (Mark 16: 1-8)
