The Lord uses Ashley Mejias to touch our hearts with the story of Mary Magdalene as she seeks the body of Jesus after the crucifixion, not knowing He has risen is right there with her, much as we, in the midst of our sorrows, cry out, "Where are You, Jesus?"   The video of this service can be watched at this link

John 20:11-18

But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb, and as she wept she stooped to look into the tomb.And she saw two angels in white, sitting where the body of Jesus had lain, one at the head and one at the feet.They said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “They have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid him.”Having said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing, but she did not know that it was Jesus.Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?”Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.”Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned and said to him in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means Teacher).Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’”Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord”—and that he had said these things to her.
