Easter Sermon on the Empty Tomb, the Work of God, and our Call to be
God's Children risen with Christ through his Resurrection into New
Life. Also includes the Renewal of Baptismal Covenant from the Book of
Common Prayer, Easter Thanksgivings, and the Invitation to the Table.
There is a lot here. Enjoy it all. Happy Easter, y'all.
Almighty God, who through your only-begotten Son
Jesus Christ overcame death and opened to us the gate of everlasting life:
Grant that we, who celebrate with joy the day of the Lord's resurrection,
may be raised from the death of sin by your life-giving Spirit; through
Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.
