Keeping vigil on Easter eve is an ancient practice for the church. The liturgy is multifaceted, rich, and playful. Twelve readings are appointed, not all of which are read each year, but as a whole they lift up some of the greatest moments of the history of God’s salvific work. This year, we hear: “In the Beginning” sung by Ann Schrooten; “Deliverance at the Red Sea” told by Rob and Sharon Englund; “The Valley of Dry Bones” told by Scott and Stephanie Cole; “Deliverance from the Fiery Furnace” told by John and Kay Buzza; and “The Resurrection Story” from the Gospel of Matthew.
