First Sunday after Easter: ‘Resurections: Give me your Hand!’

RESURRECTIONS:  Give me your hand!

‘Give me your hand’

to wipe a tear,

to make a cup of tea:

Do not be unbelieving but believe

that I am here,

before you and within;-

Give me your hand

to touch a wound with tenderness,

to change a dressing,

find a medicine:

to teach young hands to write,

to play with paint

and clay;-

to touch another’s life with love,

there is my Resurrection

now

in you.

‘Give me your hand’ said He

and in the giving, eyes are opened wide

to see the Lord, alive:-

his wounds are all our wounds,

his hands now all our hands.

He is,-

and He is here.
