“Eu-Charis”*    and   “Leit-Ourgia” **

The Spirit of the Leading Lord

takes to the floor,

begins the dance,

casts off the mourning veil,

and swirls twirls in the

rapture of the rhythm

of grace, of joy, of

lightness of stepping heart,-

and then we slowly move

into the Centre,

take the dance,

catch the reeling rhythm,

lift our hearts,

let go in pristine praise

and are

caught up in all the

movement of that fiery Spirit

swirling raptured at the Cross

and empty tomb,- today.

We are alive! We have risen

to our new-born glory, won for us-

and at this table we will dance our hearts


from death, from night into

this Glorious Day.

(Reflecting on “The Mystery of Easter”- Cantalamessa)

* Eu-Charis…. Greek for ‘A most beautiful Gift’- hence Eucharist.

** Leit-Ourgia… Greek for ‘the People’s Work’… hence Liturgy:
