On this Easter Sunday I think of hope. Hope for life eternal,
to rise with Christ Who is the light of the world.
And His light shines in rescue missions where confused
and broken hearts are healed and raised back into life,
as He was raised on Sunday. Son day. God’s Son is raised
from the dead. And hearts that feel dead and empty
leave their own empty tomb behind them, as they are
loved back into life by those who love Him.
"I will give you a peace that the world cannot give."
Let me share with you the good news. You are
loved and cherished by God.
In Orthodoxy, a greeting is exchanged on Easter Sunday
and in the days that follow.
“Christ is risen.”
And in these rescue missions it may truly be said
with especial meaning
"Christ is risen. Risen indeed." For they see Him
rise again in the lives and in the faces of those
they serve in His name.

various works being accomplished by rescue missions
across the country.

The mission is a shining light in our city, full of life and hope.
A safe place where hearts and minds can heal.
For the one message heard each day is
I know that you are hurting and feel lost.
Please know that you are loved.

these rescue missions, this is the link to the website

Christ is risen. Risen indeed. And He rises again
each day in hearts raised up in hope.
