* Note to My Readers: Due to the busyness of the next month and a half, I'm making a few minor changes to my schedule of posting. All posts will continue to be made daily and will consist of material that has not appeared before on this blog. However, because my time will be taken up by my final thesis defense for my Master of Church History degree and by a trip to the Holy Land, several of my ongoing series will be on hold until May.

- On Wednesdays, I'll be posting some of my original poems from my college years, and then in May my "Evangeliad" poems will resume.

- On Thursdays, my series on "How to Be Miserable in Your Christian Life" will wrap up by the end of March. That will conclude that series for now; however, if you enjoyed it, please let me know, because I may add more to it at some later point.

- And on Fridays, my "Glimpses of Grace" series will be on hiatus until May. In the meantime, it will be replaced with a serialized, unpublished novella that I wrote back in 2005, "Worth It All." Beginning in the first week of May, "Glimpses of Grace" will return, this time in the Thursday slot, and a newly-composed adventure novel will be posted on Fridays.

Resurrection Litany

Now he rises from the grave,
      And now we have our hope.
Now the Son lives again,
      And now so too can we.

Lift up your head,
      O Bride of Christ!
For now your Bridegroom lives!
The wondrous king awakens now,
And breathes on us again;
His death was ours,
      His life is ours,
            And now his victory.
Sin can no longer chain us,
Death can no longer bind us.
We stand alive against the world,
For we were buried once with Christ our Lord,
And now with him we rise.
