Easter Sunday - He is risen!

God of Creation,
creating anew,
the silence is broken.
With the women in the garden
we catch our breath,
wipe our tears,
and try to articulate our
experience with you.
What words can describe
shadows fleeing from the tomb?
How can we tell of the morning
the world turned upside-down?
No mortal words will do.
Still, we must spread the news:
Christ is risen!
May every breath we take,
every word we utter,
everything we do,
witness to the truth
of Christ’s resurrection.
(Sharlande Sledge, Prayers & Litanies for the Christian Seasons, published by Smyth & Helwys, 1999)

Blessings to all in our DIAKONIA World Federation, as we celebrate the good news of Jesus' resurrection. In grand cathedrals, in small churches, in villages and in cities. In so many different languages and local customs. We are one, in the body of Christ. We are one, in the risen life of Christ. Alleluia!

(If you have photos of your Easter Sunday celebration, it would be great to share them on this website or on the DIAKONIA Facebook page).
