Call to Worship: Resurrection

Here’s a creative call to worship for Easter Sunday morning.  It was written by Roddy Hamilton.

Easter Call to Worship


did you hear it:
the stone roll
the grave clothes being folded
the body rise
it was like a whispered alleluia in the stillness of the dawn
but it was real


Did you hear it:
the angels muffled laughter as the women reached the tomb
the dawn break over the garden revealing footprints in the dew
the mountains bow in slow grandeur just out the corner of your eye
it was like something shifting at the edge of your sight
but it was real


Did you hear it:
The world hold it’s breath
the stars hesitate
the sun linger
creation fill it’s lungs
the air swell
so that the whole earth can proclaim: Christ is risen!
This is resurrection morning
