Hallelujah or its alternative spelling Alleluia, meaning Praise the Lord! is a frequent response to the joyous news of Christ’s resurrection on Easter Day. Alleluia is a frequent response in our Easter hymns, such as “Jesus Christ Is Risen Today. Alleluia!”

 As part of his sermon on the joy and hope that is given by news of Christ’s resurrection, Steve Bailey, our vicar, played the well-known YouTube recording of a Flash Mob that sang the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah in a Canadian Food Hall in 2010.

 As Christ is risen, he is still active in the world. Alleluia!
