Easter Litany

Easter People

One: Jesus came and walked among us

All: And told us about God’s great love for us.

One: Jesus came and walked among us

All: And taught and healed.

One: And then he was gone, killed by people who wanted to protect their power

All: And by crowds who let themselves be talked into turning against Jesus.

That day was very dark and very sad.

All: Our hearts were broken, and we felt empty.

One: But that was Friday,

All: And today is Sunday,

One: And everything is different!

All: Jesus is alive!

One: And because Jesus is alive, we are Easter people!

All: We have hope and joy and new life!

One: We are healers and peacemakers.

All: We are people who love instead of hate, forgive instead of get even.

One: So from this day on we proclaim

All: We are Easter people! Alleluia!

Together Time: Make a huge Alleluia! poster. Decorate it with symbols of the hope and joy of Easter.

Prayer: Say a prayer, thanking God for all of the things you’ve drawn or written about on your poster. End your prayer with this: “We praise you, God! Thank you for making us Easter people! Amen.”
