Without the resurrection Christianity falls apart. With it the Church has a clear word that marks it and equips it to engage the entire world with a message of hope.  I pray that you found today’s celebration of his resurrection a time of incredible joy filled with the gospel of peace. It brings to a close a long phase of the church year and opens up to us a whole new season to follow.

All Christians, East and West, celebrated Easter on the same date this year, which doesn’t happen too often. This fact, in itself, brought a sense of the unity of the church to my own mind today. May the Holy Spirit give all Christians a deeper experience of their inherent unity in the months ahead. Amen.

    We had a Tenebrae service at Shiloh on Friday night. Last year I wrote a biblical liturgy based on the stations of the cross. Worshipers read the ten passages which related to the ten stations and each was followed by an appropriate prayer. Then each reader snuffed out a candle after his or her reading. Our worship leader mixed appropriate old hymns with wonderfully appropriate contemporary music. It was a powerful experience for our Shiloh folks. Many stayed long after the service was over for prayer and meditation. It was very meaningful for our congregation.
