The Lord is Risen Indeed! Alleluia!

"They appeared in glory [on the mountain] and were speaking of his Exodus, which Jesus was about to accomplish in Jerusalem." Luke 9:31

I've had an exceptionally full Holy Week this year. It has been nice. Here is a collect from the Easter Vigil Last night, where we read the great stories of the covenant history (including the deliverance through the Red Sea), and renewed our baptismal vows:

O God, whose wonderful deeds of old shine forth even to our own day, you once delivered by the power of your mighty arm your chosen people from slavery under Pharaoh, to be a sign for us of the salvation of all nations by the water of Baptism: Grant that all the peoples of the earth may be numbered among the offspring of Abraham, and rejoice in the inheritance of Israel; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Exodus gets connected to Baptism in a cool way in 1 Corinthians 10 - yet another one of those passages that nobody ever talked about when I was in a non-sacramental church (though it still rarely comes up in the lectionary).
