Second Sunday of Easter: The Psalm Passage – And we carry the story with joy and thanksgiving!

Seeker: “Praise the LORD! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty firmament!”
Preacher: May the Lord be praised sending Jesus to us, and for giving us a way to be in closer communion and obedience to the Divine.
Seeker: “Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his surpassing greatness!”

Preacher: The Divine undertook for us, regarding us with compassion and love. Not being content to be so far from us, the Lord God bridged the gap between our humanness and the Divinity of the Almighty.
Seeker: “Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp!”

Preacher: From that time until the present time the Divine has dwelt among us in many and special ways. When we are in despair and all around us is darkness, the Lord God brings light. When we consider and think upon what the Lord God has done for us, we raise our voices. And when we come to the end of our earthly days, we are not alone.
Seeker: “Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe!”
Preacher: We journey forward from the day that Jesus arose. We journey the same path, but now we are not alone. What we feared can not withstand the power, might, and authority of the Divine.
Seeker: “Praise him with clanging cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals!”
Preacher:
We are commissioned to go out and tell all that we met about our Lord God, and to live out the example that Jesus Christ set for us.
Seeker & Preacher: “Let everything that breathes praise the LORD! Praise the LORD!” ( Psalm 150)
