The Great Vigil takes us through the great stories of our faith. Gather together in the darkness around a great fire and listen.
From the worship leaflet:
“For three days we have watched and waited. Tonight we gather in the darkness of the grave seeking the light of the Paschal Mystery. Out of the darkness – fire – a burning bush in the desert, calls us to stop, to remember that we are on Holy Ground. Then we remember. It comes back to us piece by piece – the story of God’s unfailing salvation for the whole world until the last piece falls into place and suddenly Jesus meets us: ‘Greetings!’ “The light has shined in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it.” This is Good News, indeed!”
The Rev. Canon Janet Waggoner, Canon to the Ordinary, is the celebrant, assisted by the Rev. Kevin Johnson, St. Alban’s Theatre Arlington, and the Rev. Karen Calafat, St. Luke’s in the Meadow, Fort Worth. Tony Kroll is the organist.
