The Easter shout

Introduction

On Easter morning, Christian congregations in many lands and in many languages repeat the great Easter Acclamation or shout of praise. As a way of participating in this proclamation of the central truth of the Christian faith, why not teach and use versions of this shout in other languages. In this way, groups can be reminded that this Christian story has gone out around the world.
