From the Easter Liturgy at First Presbyterian Church, New Haven This Morning

This is the day the Lord has made.
Healing touches the suffering, the lonely discover community, peace touches every broken place.
This is the day the Lord has made.
The day of sin's defeat, the day of resurrection, the first day of the new creation.
Christ is risen!
Christ is risen indeed!  Alleluia!

Wonderful God, in the company of your church, we gather to celebrate your life, your ministry, your death and resurrection, and your love for us.  God of the living, bring us new life where we are tired and stressed.  Transform our hardened hearts into fountains of love.  Forgive us the hurts and harms we have caused and fill us with the joy of your Holy Spirit.  Amen.
