*CALL TO WORSHIP

Gather everyone, to hear the surprising story:

It is a sad and joyful song from just beyond Christ’s tomb;

all Earth has joined in.

From our private thirst for truth, we turn to the Stranger unexpectedly among us.

We fear. We doubt. We can’t understand.

Peace be with you, he says. Why are you frightened?

Why do doubts arise within you? Look and see, touch and taste!

We are witnesses: Christ is alive! Christ is with us! Hallelujah.

THE LORD’S PRAYER

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name: Thy

kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is heaven. Give us

this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we

forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into

temptation, but deliver us from evil; for thine is the kingdom, the

power and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.
