When the Rev. Dr. Alan Harvey penned these words back in 2007, he had already made Bright Sunday, the Sunday after Easter, a day of celebration here at First Pres. Alan, and The Fellowship of Merry Christians, a national group in which he holds membership, wanted the joy of Easter each year to extend to Bright Sunday and beyond. And it does for us as believers.
Jesus died and rose from the grave. Easter joy and new life He gave.
And the butterfly now set free, is the symbol for you and me.
God of the resurrection, today and each day we celebrate that now Good Friday’s past, Easter’s here at last, as we celebrate the news that Jesus lives. Amen.
