Easter Dinner Devotional
A Simple Order for an Easter Devotional Around the Table
Call to the Table

Easter Dinner Grace (choose one):
- This table is set with good things. Feed us so that we may feed others! AMEN.
- Risen Christ, for our wounds and sores, make us resilient. For our deaths and dyings, give us resurrection. For the mysteries that are hard to believe, increase our tolerance for ambiguity. With this meal, feed us with gratitude and joy. AMEN.
Benediction at the End of the Meal – Rising Christ, may the sun set as the sun rose today: with newness and anticipation, awe and wonder, love and grace. May we go in peace from this table as people of Easter hope. AMEN.
