The Anglican Communion is co-ordinating a social media campaign for Easter Sunday. Members of its churches around the world are encouraged to post a text or video message to Twitter at 5am (local time) on Easter Sunday using the hashtag #GlobalSonRise and indicating where the message is coming from.
A suggested script for videos is below. Video messages can be up to two minutes in length, and can be recorded in advance and scheduled to appear at that time. The spelling is deliberate and the idea is to counter media coverage of closed church buildings with the message of the resurrection. If anyone is unable to schedule a post but still wishes to take part, they can record a brief video (mobile is fine) and email it to email@example.com or send it to Gavin by WhatsApp to +447795570301
Christ is Risen
He is Risen Indeed
followed by: the same Easter acclamation in the local language;
followed by: brief Easter greetings in the local language which mentions where it is recorded;
and ending with “Jesus is alive!” in the local language and English.
