Creative Resources for Easter

What is more true than divine love embodied in flesh and bone? Divine love that is let loose in the world—released, unbound.

As a continuation of EMBODIED Lent, this bundle celebrates a God who not only slips into skin, but steps beyond the grave. God is not only embodied in the person of Jesus—God is everywhere.

If you haven't been using our EMBODIED theme for Lent, you may still be interested in our visual art and poetic prayers, as they can be used for different themes and directions.

Bundle includes visual art, creative liturgy, written reflections, and graphics.

1. New Life Poetic Prayers


[Individual Price: $5]

These 5 short poetic prayers reflect on themes of new life & resurrection in a way that feels personal and intimate. Honest and pure, they imagine what new life truly feels like—for us and for God. We hope you might adapt them for worship or print them as they are for members in your community to read and return to throughout Eastertide.

You rose from the dead.
You rose from the dead, so morning after morning I will rise from my bed
with the hope of loving bigger than the day before,
for the dawn feels more precious in the days after Easter. Doesn’t it?

—Sarah Are, excerpt from "Dawn."

"What did it feel like, when breath came back into your lungs?” I asked.
God smiled at me and said, “You know the golden hour, right before sunset?”
“Yes,” I whispered.
“It felt like standing in an open field, in the center of the sun’s attention—warm and safe, starstruck by the earth’s beauty, and so aware that time here matters.
Do you know that feeling?” God asked.  

—Sarah Are, excerpt from "New Life"


[Individual Price: $20]

This is a pair of visuals inspired by the RCL gospel scripture texts for Easter day (Year B). Download includes files formatted for print and web/projection, written reflections on each visual (and how it offers commentary on the scripture), and a short visio divina guide for using the art in a group practice of visual meditation.

In this image, I wanted to convey an abstract figure tugged by the tension of light and dark. The figure simultaneously  emerges from the darkness of death and also appears to be sailing into light. God’s presence is no longer physically embodied, but released, unbound.
—Lisle Gwynn Garrity, "Everywhere" (Inspired by Mark 16: 1-8)

God’s unbinding, God’s release, proof—all wrapped up in the linens left behind. With a sense of knowing and a feeling of understanding, John and Peter’s eyes rested for the first time on these discarded pieces of fabric. The miracle rushed upon them.
—Hannah Garrity, "Unbound" (Inspired by John 20: 1-18)


[Individual Price: $30]

As a continuation of our EMBODIED lent graphic logo, this design offers visual symbolism for the season of Eastertide. Download includes files for print and web so you can use them for projecting images and slides in worship, printing on bulletins, study materials, church publications, and advertising your worship on your website and online.

For this icon, I decided to keep the outward rays of the EMBODIED icon and transform the inside to represent the stone rolled away from the tomb with light pouring into that dark, bleak, hopeless space. 
—Lauren Wright Pittman, graphic artist
