Alleluia! Christ is Risen!

"The angel said to the women, 'Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: 'He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee There you will see him.'
-Matthew 28:5-7

Thank You to everyone who's been following along on our Lent Journey! We have all greatly enjoyed sharing our thoughts, experiences and reflections with you all. While the 40 days of lent are up and we can joyously celebrate the Easter Season, it doesn't mean we stop discovering and deepening our relationship with Christ. This is only one step forward on our lifelong walk with Him.

Today, we're finishing the blog the same way we started it - with pictures of the YASCers celebrating Easter around the world!

"O God, Creator of heaven and earth: Grant that, as the crucified body of your dear Son 
was laid in the tomb and rested on this holy Sabbath, so we may await with him 
the coming of the third day, and rise with him to newness of life;
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, 
one God, for ever and ever.
-Book of Common Prayer, page 283
