The Empty Tomb – a service holding a space for the post-resurrection low in which we acknowledge our shared experience of loss over the past year. The booklet can be viewed and downloaded here (PDF).
We gather this evening in the wake of the resurrection.
In the empty tomb, we encounter the loss of Jesus –
There is no body to care for
No marker at which to mourn
Just this empty tomb
He is risen!
But He is not here
And when he appears, we do not recognise him.
Even as we celebrate the resurrection
It is ok to mourn Jesus
It is ok to feel his absence
And to worry that we will not see him again
And in this empty tomb,
we share in grief for all we have lost,
for those who have passed,
for all who accompanied them,
for all who were unable to accompany them,
and for all who have not had the opportunity
to mourn their loved ones as they had wished.
