ctw: we are not tired of saying it

One:     We are not tired of saying it.
All:       Christ is risen! Alleluia!
One:     It’s been seven weeks, but we can’t stop ourselves from saying it again and again.
All:       Christ is risen! Alleluia!
One:     So, let’s find a new way to tell this story. Let’s not let the power of resurrection be limited by the Biblical canon.
All:       Let’s worship God with all of the stories that we can possibly think to tell.
One:     Let’s not get tired of saying it.
All:       Christ is risen! Alleluia! Alleluia!

 

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.
