Filey Parish : Easter Sunday. Rev Elsie Butterworth's Post

Psalm 118

 1 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
       his love endures forever.
 2 Let Israel say:
       "His love endures forever."
 14 The LORD is my strength and my song;
       he has become my salvation.
 15 Shouts of joy and victory
       resound in the tents of the righteous:
       "The LORD's right hand has done mighty things!
 16 The LORD's right hand is lifted high;
       the LORD's right hand has done mighty things!"
 17 I will not die but live,
       and will proclaim what the LORD has done.
 18 The LORD has chastened me severely,
       but he has not given me over to death.
 19 Open for me the gates of righteousness;
       I will enter and give thanks to the LORD.
 20 This is the gate of the LORD
       through which the righteous may enter.
 21 I will give you thanks, for you answered me;
       you have become my salvation.
 22 The stone the builders rejected
       has become the capstone;
 23 the LORD has done this,
       and it is marvelous in our eyes.
 24 This is the day the LORD has made;
       let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Lord of High -Rise and Hostel, of the homeless and marginalized, of the threatening urban territories, of the angry and the failing, teach me.......
that EASTER CHANGES EVERYTHING or it changes nothing.
And so it must begin -and continue-by changing ME.  So let me live out the power of EASTER in this very place ,Lord.
Never doubting that here, even here you intend life abundant: and it is for me in your strength to help make it happen.  Amen. Amen .

Alleluia, Christ is risen.  He is risen indeed , Alleluia!
