Easter Sunday, or Resurrection Sunday, has arrived at last! The love of God — that reconciles and transforms all things, and that is embodied in Jesus Christ — could not be silenced or destroyed. He is risen!

Lectionary readings (from the Revised Common Lectionary):

Acts 10:34-43
or Isaiah 25:6-9
Psalm 118:1-2, 14-24
1 Corinthians 15:1-11
or Acts 10:34-43
John 20:1-18
or Mark 16:1-8

We invite you to reflect and respond to the Holy Week prayer and action from our Lenten Prayers for Hungry People resource.

Prayer:

O Christ, by your crucifixion and resurrection, you overcome death and all the powers of evil. Grant us faith to trust your promise of new life so that, living in your steadfast love, we may be extravagant in sharing with all those in need.

Amen.

Action:

The weeks following Easter—before the school year ends and summer activities start—are an ideal time to explore how we can be agents of new life in God's world. The spring recess is also a good time to meet with your representative when she or he returns to the home district. Visit www.bread.org to find suggestions about arranging these face-to-face visits with your Congressional representative.
