Papa’s World – Easter sunrise service on the beach – cold – but worth it!

It was rather cold – 46 degrees – but thank goodness no wind!

We went in the dark – at 6:15 AM. and was surprised at all the cars and activity.

This was but one of several services up and down the beach.

ELCA – which we are a member of – along with the Episcopal church –

Came together to have this service.

I would guess by the start – some 4 to 5 hundred souls gathered on the beach-

many standing – others brought their own chairs

At last – in more than a year – we attended a live service.

Glory to God in the highest – and peace to his people on earth.

All our married lives – we have attended church – me – I converted from Catholic to Lutheran

which was how Sherry was raised.

I serve a risen Savior , He’s in the world today – I know that He is living , whatever others say ; I see his hand of mercy , I hear his voice of cheer, And just the time I need Him He’s always near.
They came and came – down the ramp or steps – or from up the beach and down the beach – walking- walking – walking – silently – some hand in hand – others close by – Easter Sunrise Service.
Give thanks to the LORD , for he is good; “His mercy endures for ever.”

They were mostly silent – a few murmurs here and there – ushers directing people – passing out communion cups and wafers – a few announcements – still cold – but at least there was no wind. The sound of the surf – the seagulls – the stillness of the early morning hour – the sand cold – bundled up – ear muffs and scarf – waiting – waiting – waiting.

Our Father , who art in heaven , hallowed be thy name , thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World
