One night at the cinema and a week of TV news

Hotel Rwanda
Red Lake Reservation
Fulton County Superior Court
Woodside Hospice
Guantanamo Bay

A tiny kitchen in a small apartment in Duluth

Matters of life and death
Matters of morality
Matters of politics

As we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus from the dead
Do it again God
Do a mighty work

Let your angel roll away stones
stones of
unbelief
hatred
racism
violence
oppression
war

Let your people find their broken selves
quickened by
faith
love
brotherhood
gentleness
service
peace

at our kitchen tables
may we speak truth and love and purpose
in the face of hopelessness and threat
may we copy the courage of Paul Rusesabagina

and be students of Ashley Smith

in the halls of power
may we speak truth and love and purpose
in the face of hopelessness and threat
may we copy the courage of the prophets

and be the imitation of Christ

What a beautiful, relevant reminder that "He Still Moves Stones."

Because He lives,
