Easter Evening Benediction

Alleluia!

Christ has risen.

Now—together,
wherever we are,
we breathe in
the resurrection news. 

Loved by a generous Creator,
we live—
Startled awake by a risen Redeemer,
we encounter grace—
Emboldened by a justice-seeking Sustainer,
we share Easter love with others—

Alleluia!

Amen.
