After the short simple eloquence, worshippers departed in the Sun’s glory
Pastor Boyer’s ceremony was simple and brief, saying”This is the Good News– the light shines in the darkness and the darkness can never put it out. . Christ is our peace, the indestructible peace we now share with each other”.
a hymn followed, with is verse that speaks to every person:
“Our hearts be pure from evil, that we may see aright the Lord in rays eternal of resurrection light; and listening to his accents, may hear, so calm and plain, his own “All hail!” and, hearing, may raise the victor strain.”
Pastor Boyer closed by encouraging all to see the meaning of Christ in our every day life in simple acts of kindness.
