Easter Reprise: A New Stanza

God
gave us
free will, not
to rule the world
but to love, cherish,
and share in creation.
It is through Christ, we cross the
borders of the holy and are
entreated to love one another.
Lord, take us, renew us and remake us.

We are Easter people and see the world
not as lost but full of new promise.
The road is not without peril,
many challenges await,
but in Christ we find strength.
We are one body.
Alleluia!
Together
we will
mend.

The first stanza is from Easter: A New Beginning posted last Easter.  The second stanza is new and as we remain in lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, it reflects a prayer of hope for the renewal yet to come.
