Prelude – The Day of Resurrection ‐ Arr. Payne
But in fact, Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have died For since death came through a human, the resurrection of the dead has also come through a human, for as all die in Adam, so all will be made alive in Christ. ~I Corinthians 15:20‐22

Luke 24:1-12 – New Revised Standard Version
1 But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices that they had prepared.
2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb,
3 but when they went in they did not find the body.
4 While they were perplexed about this, suddenly two men in dazzling clothes stood beside them.
5 The women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here but has risen.
6 Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee,
7 that the Son of Man must be handed over to the hands of sinners and be crucified and on the third day rise again.”
8 Then they remembered his words,
9 and returning from the tomb they told all this to the eleven and to all the rest.
10 Now it was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the other women with them who told this to the apostles.
11 But these words seemed to them an idle tale, and they did not believe them.
12 But Peter got up and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw the linen cloths by themselves; then he went home, amazed at what had happened.
The powerful hope of Easter restarts our faith, our believing, our lives. God’s hope can reach through the strongest despair and even the finality of death & bring us rebirth.
Let us know what you would like to sing in Worship this summer!
