He is risen! He is risen indeed!
Christ has died! Christ has risen! Christ will come again!
Believers around the world universally declare these two statements on this wonderful day.
A choral cantata was the highlight of our church's worship service today. We sounded pretty good, if I say so myself.
Our service traditionally ends with a song that has the chorus, "The tomb is empty, praise be to God." This year I told myself that I wouldn't start choking up during the song. But it didn't matter. I did it anyway.
At 7:00am, I went to a community sunrise service at a neighboring church. Afterwards, we continued our fellowship with an Easter breakfast.
One man said something funny to his wife: "Honey, since it was women who first discovered the empty tomb, I think that only women should be allowed to attend sunrises services. Us men, we'll just show up later for breakfast."
Have a blessed resurrection Sunday.
