Easter is a Celebration
April 3, 2010
Tomorrow morning, let’s celebrate. Some people wonder why we coopted the pagan practice of eggs and bunnies to celebrate Christ rising from the dead. Isn’t that wrong? No, its not. Pagans were not using them right. We are. Eggs, bunnies, spring, all are God’s annual reminder of the ressurection. The trees were dead. Now they are alive again. The skies were desolate….now they chirp with life. All of creation celebrates with us.
Lent is over. The long fast is about to be broken. We waited for Christ……now he is here. Celebrate. Feast. Rejoice with Family. And remember that our God is a God of the abundant life.
