Risen Indeed!

Like many, it is my tradition to participate in a Sunrise Service for Easter Sunday Worship. This year, I attended the City Wide Community worship in Charlotte. Several Christ communities gathered together among the towering buildings in Romare Bearden Park  to worship in the coolness of this morning’s air. Each presenter shared music, prayer, and God’s spoken word from the cultural context of their own church community. The gathering was praise filled and inclusive. Throughout the service, I was thankful for these Christ communities who intentionally gathered together from different denominations and ethnic cultures to worship God during Resurrection Sunday. It is the most appropriate way to gather in an act of worship for the one who died for us all. He is risen! He is risen indeed!

Easter Risen Indeed!
