Who Will Roll Away the Stone ? Easter 2010

When the Sabbath was over, Mary of Magdala, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought perfumed oils so that they could anoint Jesus...They were saying to one another, Who will roll away the stone for us?
-- Mark 16: 1 & 3

Please God, as we wait in the darkness and emptiness of sadness for the light of Easter to shine through our lives help us all reconcile our differences and be united in one resolve to :

Roll away the stone for Resurrection in the Church!

Roll away the stone in both our prayer and our calling:

For Peace
For Joy
For Laughter
For Love
For Strength
For Wisdom
For Patience
For Strength
For Song
For Fullness of Life in Christ

for Full Ministry for Women in the church
-  for Sexual Equality
-  for Academic Freedom for Theologians
-  for Non Mandatory Celibacy for Priests

Mumford &;Sons : Roll Away Your Stone

Roll away your stone I will roll away mine
Together we can see what we will find
Don't leave me alone at this time
For I am afraid of what I will discover inside

You told me that I would find a home
Beneath the fragile substance of my soul
And I have filled this void with things unreal
And all the while my character it steals

Darkness is a harsh term don't you think
Yet it dominates the things I see

It seems that all my bridges have been burned
But you say 'That's exactly how this grace thing works’
It's not the long walk home that will change this heart
But the welcome I receive with the re-start

Darkness is a harsh term don't you think
And yet it dominates the things I see
Darkness is a harsh term don't you think
And yet it dominates the things I see

Stars hide your fires
For these here are my desires
And I won't give them up to you this time around
And so I will be found
With my stake stuck in the ground
Marking the territory of this newly impassioned soul

And you, you've gone too far this time
You have neither reason nor rhyme
With which to take this soul that is so rightfully mine
