The sanctuary is very dark (pitch black), and ushers escort people to their seats using small flashlights. As the service starts, a dim light appears on Peter who is standing at the front of the Sanctuary. Peter is in mourning. Peter details his sorrow and confusion and shame (for denying Jesus three times).
Suddenly, down the aisle of the sanctuary comes Mary shouting, "He's Alive! I've seen Jesus!"
The lights come on inside the sanctuary, children stream down the side aisles holding Easter lilies, and the song "He's Alive" (in the video below) is played. The Holy Spirit fills the sanctuary as the Church stands to praise Jesus.
Enjoy this music, and, for those who experienced this service, re-live the experience. -- Susan
