Sunrise Service

At 7:30 this morning our church held a literal sunrise service in a literal field next to a literal barn. It was still a legitimate sunrise service as late as 7:30 because the farm where we held it is situated in a cozy little valley, so it takes a little bit longer for the sun to peek over top of the hill than it would if we had held the service, say, on top of a tower. One of the men suggested for next year that we find someone who lives on a farm in a deeper valley so we can sleep in later. We can try that!

Our order of service made it easy to stay on schedule and kept my sleep-deprived brain from having to do anything impromptu. I was trying to keep things brief due to the environmental difficulties, but I wanted to make sure that we were telling the whole story.

Isaiah 53:1-12
Song: Man of Sorrows, What a Name
Luke 24:1-12
John 20:19-29
THE DAWNING by George Herbert
Song: Crown Him with Many Crowns
1 Corinthians 15:12-26
Song: Jesus Lives and So Shall I
1 Corinthians 15:50-58

The weather was beautiful despite snow in the forecast as late as Saturday night, and the only minor distraction was a couple of chatty snow geese flying overhead.

These are the mornings when it’s easy to get out of bed and go to work.
