I went to church today…. Simple Church…And this is what I saw and heard

Order of Service

Call to Worship

The robin and sparrow hymns sung in perfect pitch,
random and glorious in their proclamation
He is Risen …Indeed

Passing of the  Peace 

The river rushed joyful…. to full to contain her excitement… to tell her friend the sea… the prospect of labor pains ceasing.
“Death defeated… hurry come see….Peace be with you!….And Also with you!”

Children’s Message

The chatter of the three excited little girls and Charles cozied up in one chair

reading Benjamin’s Box and peering into the Resurrection Eggs

That told the story of a King..the King

Scripture Reading:

Of this gospel I was made a minister according to the gift of God’s grace, which was given me by the working of his power.  To me, though I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to bring to light for everyone what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things,  so that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.  This was according to the eternal purpose that he has realized in Christ Jesus our Lord.           Ephesians 3:7-11

Special Music

The Gooses’ shrill call to his mate…

Alleluia He Lives, We are now Free


The sun in triumphant return from yesterday’s rain bellowed the Good News for all to hear….for all to see…

“Come and look in the dark, ponder the depths of the cave and you will see it is empty..
it is Empty… the grave is Empty
No foe could hold the Light greater than even mine”

Prayer of Confession

I am humbled and awed by the beauty of this symphony of creation

this tremendous gift of life.. life abundant.. to one so undeserving

for free…for me…


Words from Aaron…the first Priest

May the Lord Bless you and keep you;

May He make His face to shine on you

And be gracious to you…

May He lift up His countenance on you

And give you Peace…..

Church by the River….Simple Church

He is Alive!!!!
