Early Easter Sunday morning we celebrated Jesus’ resurrection by carrying our heavy wooden cross up the hill, as we have done every year for almost 30 years.
We walked in silence and took turns carrying the cross.
We stopped 5 times to listen to Scripture and to sing together.
We paused at the top to look out over the valley and reflect on the meaning of Christ’s resurrection before singing “Lift your glad voices!”
And then we made our way back down to the church for breakfast and worship.
Choices! Choices! The array of breakfast casseroles, fresh fruit, and baked goodies was enough to satisfy a large group of diners.
The table centerpiece created by Jane and Ken reminded everyone of the meaning of Easter – an empty tomb!
We enjoyed lots of wonderful music, Scripture readings, and reflections from four eye-witnesses: Peter, Mary Magdalene, Cleopas and Thomas.
HE IS RISEN!
HE IS RISEN INDEED!!
