People: And our joy echo off the canyon walls.

Leader:   Christ is risen, today!

People: Christ is risen, indeed!

People: And dry deserts yield new bouquets.

*Invocation                            

Holy God, today your glory and power is made known in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. We are Easter people because Christ is risen. He is alive! And, where you live, life and light, freedom and salvation, hope and reconciliation break out. You penetrate our lives. You propel us to action. You invigorate our love. All praise and honor and glory be yours as we manifest the risen Christ in our worship and in our lives. Amen.

Our Father, who art in heaven,

Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, forever and ever. 
Amen
