Christ is risen. Death is dead.
We think this calls for more than a pastel easter egg hunt.
We think it calls for feasting and music and dancing, for a joyful procession through downtown with songs and tambourines.
One of the ways God likes to be worshiped is for his people to feast before him, and so we are beginning the first annual Resurrection Fest in Durango.
It will begin Friday evening with Good Friday worship, continue with festivities all day Saturday, and culminate in joyful gathered worship Sunday morning.
Come help us make a big deal of the death and resurrection of Jesus!
Drunken revelry, a thin charade.
The kingdom of God is a joyful procession,
The kingdom of earth, a zombie parade.
Jesus leads this kingdom song,
‘All you weary come along!
Trade your masks for hearts aglow,
Your rotting flesh for festal clothes.’
