The Great Easter Vigil

While Saturday morning may have been filled with sunshine , laughter and an Easter Egg Hunt, the congregation at Oak Hill turns prayerful again in the afternoon with an Easter Prayer Vigil.

Starting at 1pm, individuals and families take turns attending to prayer in our sanctuary. This will continue throughout the day and night until our Easter Sunrise service at 6:30 am.

It is almost startling to be here at 10 pm, in silence. much of my church experience is about being busy, with prayer almost as a background noise.

Pastor Chris Davis provides us with scripture, and other study materials, my favorite is Ann Weems "Psalms of Lament". I enjoy prayerful art journaling and singing during this time as well.

Hopefully you will join me in prayer.

We are alone, Jesus is not sitting with us, we wait. May God's Blessed Assurance be with us in this hour as we welcome the Risen Christ into our lives
