One: O Holy One, worship might be over. We might be done with our praise.
All: But, let’s not go to our own homes greiving and sad. Let us go fishing for alleluias in the seas of your love!
Author’s Note: On Easter 7, I’m breaking from the RCL to preach from the Gospel of Peter as we conclude the Easter Season. Though these prayers are based in that scripture, they certainly carry the story of the entire Easter Season – and its end.
