This resurrection day, we will not travel to the tomb, Lord.
We have been in it with you in what has felt like one very long vigil.
We are waiting for it to be safe to venture outside into the light
after a year of hunkering down
We are waiting for justice for our siblings in Christ
who have been crucified with you
because of their race
or their gender
or their orientation
or their country of origin.
We are waiting for comfort in our grief,
guidance in our confusion,
hope in our despair.
This resurrection day, Lord, we are sitting in the shadows
as you rise
and still we may not recognize you standing before us
because of our angst,
or understand your imperative
because of our surprise.
Speak to us clearly, O Lord, we pray.
Open our eyes to see you.
Open our ears to hear your voice.
THIS resurrection day, Lord, grant us courage
to share the Good News with confidence:
that Jesus Christ is risen!
He is risen indeed!
Thanks be to God!
