New Life

And he departed from our sight that we might return to our heart, and there find Him. For He departed, and behold, He is here.
St. Augustine, Christian philosopher (354–430)

God of all our hopes, we come to this place as a broken and fragile people.
We come to this place as an expectant and hopeful people.
We are looking for signs of new life.
We are listening for Good News.
Open the tomb to us; show us the Rise One.
People of God, hear the Good News: In life, in death in life beyond death, God's love for us endures forever. Our hopes are fulfilled; we are forgiven and offered new life in Christ.
Thanks be to God!
Easter Prayer, Melrose United Church

Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!
