He Is Risen Indeed at Red Rocks

For the first time in many years, my family and I had the opportunity to attend the sunrise service at Red Rocks. If you have never seen the beauty of this God created amphitheater, you can find a good Wiki here and, maybe more famously, it is the backdrop for U2’s ‘Sunday Bloody Sunday’ video. Yesterday, it was the house of God as several thousand people braved temperatures around 18 and snow and ice to be a part of this wonderful worship service.

These sisters awaken the spirits in the darkness, preparing hearts for the presence of the Lord.

We look out over the Great Plains to the East, flat for as far as the eye can see, straining to catch the first glimpse of the new dawn.

As the sun rises just over the horizon, the promise of the new life is renewed. He is risen! He is risen indeed!
