He is risen!

Matthew 28:

In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.

And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:

And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.

And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.

He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.

And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.

And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.

10 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

11 Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done.

12 And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers,

13 Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept.

14 And if this come to the governor’s ears, we will persuade him, and secure you.

15 So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.

16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.

17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.

18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

    5) We are the Easter people, Alleluia is our song

    Let us rejoice, let us sing out Jesus is risen, Alleluia!

    He died for us, now He is risen,
    We share his life, Jesus is Lord.

    His light shines out, dispelling darkness
    Tell the whole world, Jesus is Lord.

    Proclaim His glory, Christ id the Saviour.
    He dies no more, Jesus is Lord.

    God’s people sing, you share His victory

    Have no more fear, Jesus is Lord..

    __Tom Leigh (Based on the writings of St. Augustine)

    6) Easter morning Easter egg hunts with young children.

    7) Easter bunnies are packing way their creepy costumes for another year.

    8) The stone was rolled away.

    9) Sharing our churches, our cathedrals, our services, our masses, our open skies, in joy, glory and gratitude.

    Hearts that gather together today to celebrate Christ, Grace, the gift of Life, forgiveness and redemption, the hearts that are absent today in the full glory of redemption, the hearts that are separated by miles, misunderstanding, illness, busy schedules, or every day life, hearts of love remain entwined by our commonality in the Glory of Creation.

    “And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and…” HIde the eggs. Paint them purple and hide them in the park. We have to fool Jesus. Tell everyone from now on that eggs come from Rabbits so he won’t go after the chickens too…” Excerpts from Carlos Mencia.
