Wake Up, Trees

“Oh, Trees, Trees, Trees,” said Lucy (although she had not been intending to speak at all). “Oh, Trees, wake, wake, wake. Don’t you remember it? Don’t you remember me? Dryads and Hamadryads, come out, come out to me.”

Though there was not a breath of wind they stirred all about her. The rustling noise of the leaves was almost like words. The nightingale stopped singing as if to listen to it.

Where is Your Sting?

When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?
1 Corinthians 15:54-55

Throughout the evening, we completed stations that show how Jesus’ brokenness on the cross has provided our healing, how the stone in front of the tomb hid life, how we can celebrate because of Jesus’ victory over death, and how we are called to spread this light to the rest of the world. As the evening came to a close, we finished with a time of worship and community communion.
