Responsive Benediction: Easter

Here’s a responsive benediction adapted from 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 and Acts 10: 39-43.  It was written by Amy Loving.

Responsive Benediction
(based on 1 Corinthians 15: 1-4 and Acts 10: 39-43)

Remember the Good News that we have received and proclaimed this day–
the Good News in which we stand and through which we are being saved.
We will remember and hold tightly to the truth we proclaim with joy!
Christ died for our sins, just as the scriptures said that he would.
But the story doesn’t end in death. 
Christ was raised on the third day, just as it was promised!
We are witnesses to this Good News,
and God commands that we do not keep this news to ourselves!
We will testify to all that Christ is Lord! 
Christ is risen!  Christ is risen, indeed!  Alleluia!  Amen!
