In the Rising Sun Today

Easter Invocation

From WorshipWeb

today is a story day of a man who was loved dying washed with herbs wrapped in scented cloths laid to rest in a cave tomb a rock marking the place a story of followers weeping in surprise when they are told not to be afraid that the rock is rolled away and the cave tomb is empty and somewhere up...

The Cave Tomb Is Empty

We all know loss and pain.
Let none of it divide us.
In the rising sun today
Let us do together what we cannot do alone:
Roll away the stones that close our hearts.
