Written for Easter service 4-17-2022
|On this day of amazement,|
Let us experience renewal of faith
as all around us, nature experiences renewal of life.
Please awaken our understanding that
as we walk into the challenges of our lives
we are never alone
we are always loved
and no matter what mistakes we make
we will be forgiven and strengthened
as we strive to right the wrong we have done.
Please grant us the faith that Jesus demonstrated,
the faith that Mary Magdalene experienced,
the faith that sustained Jesus’ mother, Mary.
Such is the faith that makes hope possible.
Lord, please let the light of your love
shine through our actions
as we strive to continue Jesus’ work.
