Easter Call to Worship: Risen!

Here’s a call to worship for Easter Sunday morning.  It was written by Ann Siddall.

Call to Worship for Easter Sunday

Think of a moment when someone
that you least expected to see
suddenly stands before you.

A moment when something you’d lost
is found again and you
can scarcely believe your eyes.

Think of a moment when your fear
was suddenly proved unfounded
and you were surprised by joy.

This morning is such a moment.
We resign ourselves to the worst,
and suddenly life turns around.

So come this Easter morning,
to be shaken from your conviction
that nothing can change your situation.

Come if you look at the world
and feel overwhelmed by its chaos,
or disillusioned by its promises.

On this morning we remember
how Mary went to anoint a corpse,
and was greeted by a Saviour.

Come to worship prepared
to see your life and the world
through new eyes.

For Christ is risen,
he is risen indeed. Hallelujah!
