He Is Risen (A Photostory)

“Good morning, church family,” Grace says. “Happy Easter! We are gathered here today, instead of going to an actual brick-and-mortar building, due to an inconvenient cold that has afflicted two of our sisters.”

“That would be us,” Linsey says.

“We’re going to start off by signing “Amazing Grace.” Will you please all stand and join us?”

We all stand and clear our throats.

“Amazing grace, how sweet the sound. That saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now am found. Was blind but now I see.”

“And now we would like to welcome Morgan to the stage. She is going to be our “pastor” for the day,” Grace announces at the end of the song.

“Thank you, Grace,” Morgan says, standing up. “Thank you all for joining me today. As Grace mentioned before, we are gathered here instead of at our usual church. It is allergy season, after all.”

“Thanks, Morgan,” Lindsey says.

“I have a very special message for all of you today,” Morgan tells us. “Did you know that on this day, long ago, Jesus rose from the dead?”

“Yep, that’s right. He defeated the grave! Death couldn’t hold God’s only son down.”

“On Good Friday, Jesus died. His followers were heartbroken. But, by the power of the Holy Spirit, Jesus rose three days later.”

“That’s why we celebrate Easter every year! While the bunnies and Easter egg hunts are fun, the real reason for our happiness is Jesus’ resurrection.”

“The most amazing this is that, if you are a Christian, the same power that raised Jesus from the dead lives inside of YOU. Will you pray with me?”

“Dear Lord, we want to thank You for Your grace and compassion, that you sent your only son to die in our places. While we deserved punishment, You took mercy on us and sent Jesus as a sacrifice. We are so thankful for what you did. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.”

“He is risen!”

“He is risen indeed!”

“Happy Easter from the AGIA family!!!”

  1. I like the last pic๐Ÿ˜‚
    I used to love doing church like that when we didnโ€™t go. Thatโ€™s what me and my mom did when I was sick. That was fun.

      1. Our church only has live sessions twice a year, which just so happened there was one today.
        We just usually made up our own stuff based of scriptures and modern revelations. Though, we donโ€™t have a preacher like most Christian faiths do, we all contribute.

    1. Thank you! It was kind of hard because the camera wasn’t working, so I had to take the pics on my dad’s phone. Actually, I got it on Ebay! It came with Tessa. I think it is a communion dress. THANK YOU!!!!

    A Thirty-One Gifts Large Utility Tote holds seven dolls and makes transport easy. However, there are times when I just gather everyone in my arms like that. ๐Ÿ˜€
