Christ is risen! Hallelujah!
People from at least four different churches gathered this morning to greet the sunrise in remembrance of that first Easter morning. At the highest point in the city, we sang hymns of praise, and heard the gospel accounts of the discovery of the empty tomb … and at just the right moment, the sun came up in a glow of red as we sang ‘Thine be the glory, risen, conquering Lord!’ …
The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
