He is not here for he has been raised... - Matthew 28:6  NRSV

Come, ye saints, look here and wonder,
See the place where Jesus lay; 
He has born our sins away; 
Joyful tiding, 
Yes, the Lord has risen today 
- Thomas Kelly

"Christ the Lord is risen today,"
Sons of men and angels say.
Raise your joys and triumphs high;
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply
- Charles Wesley

This is the day that the Lord has made... - Psalms 118:24 NRSV

"Now on the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they, and certain other women with them, came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared. But they found the stone rolled away from the tomb. Then they went in and did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. And it happened, as they were greatly perplexed about this, that behold, two men stood by them in shining garments. Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, 'Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee, saying, 'The Son of Man must be delivered and into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.'' And they remembered His words. Then they returned from the tomb and told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest." - Luke 24:1-9 (NKJV)

"In return for the love which brought the Son of Man down from heaven, in return for the love which led Him to die for us on the cross, we cannot give Him holy lives, for we are not holy; we cannot give Him pure souls, for our souls are not pure; but this one thing we can give, and this is what He asks, hearts that shall never cease from this day forward, till we reach the grave, to strive to be more like Him; to come nearer to Him; to root out from within us the sin that keeps us from Him. To such a battle I call you in His name. And even if at the last day you shall not be able to show any other service, yet be sure that when thousands of His saints go forth to meet Him, and to show His triumph, He will turn to embrace with arms of tenderness the poor penitent who has nothing to offer but a life spent in one never-ceasing struggle with oneself, an unwearied battle with the faults that had taken possession of his soul. - Frederick Temple

What a beautiful season,
A time of new beginnings,
A season of faith, love, and sacrifice,
Forgiving sins,
Blood shed for us all.        -Kristin Kimbark  (4/21/2000)
