Note to My Readers: Due to the busyness of my summer schedule, in which I'm serving as a camp pastor on top of my normal duties, I'll be putting my ongoing Thursday and Friday series on hold until mid-August. All other days will continue to feature new content as usual, and the Thursday and Friday slots will offer devotional and theological reflections (heretofore unpublished) from my seminary years.

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.
