Victory Over Death      

John 20:1-10; 1 Peter 1:3-5, 8-9 NRSV   


Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!  By his great mercy he has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.  1 Peter 1:3

Christ is risen! You are risen — risen from the tomb of hopelessness and despair. Hallelujah!
