On Easter Sunday morning, 250+ people huddled together on the beach in the dark to usher in the light of the Risen Christ just as the sun broke over the ocean. It was a beautifully primal time together, where we sung hymns, broke bread, and shared the cup in a circle around God’s altar in the sand. We even had the unique privilege to baptize a whole family in God’s vast sea, using the natural elements of God’s first Incarnation to sanctify four new Christians into the mystical risen body of Christ. Thanks be to God!
