Christ is alive!


The Sower of Resurrection Seeds has arisen.
Christ is alive!
Easter hands
are flinging new hope
with wild and joyous abandon.

Though we may be scattered,
we are planted in fertile Easter ground.
God calls us today—
to shoulder up through uncertain soil
and become crocus blooms in desert places.

Though scattered,
we are one in the love of Jesus.
Forever held together
in the heart and hands
of the One who gives life.
Who is life.

Christ is risen.
