Hoosier Musings on the Road to Emmaus

The Light of Christ - Thanks be to God!

Almighty God, who for our redemption gave your only-begotten Son to the death of the cross, and by his glorious resurrection delivered us from the power of our enemy: Grant us so to die daily to sin, that we may evermore live with him in the joy of his resurrection; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

I began this day by standing vigil in the predawn dark, and celebrating the Eucharist in the new day. Then a lovely brunch; and into the car to drive down for Easter Sunday worship at our home parish. Dinner with my sister and her family; and finally, home.

Thanks be to God, indeed-- for the gift of new life in Jesus, and for the day off tomorrow to rest up from the celebration thereof.
