The Easter shout

Whole schoolRE
This idea explores versions of the great Easter Acclamation or shout of praise from around the world.

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.
