Easter Chuckle

"I stayed because it was God and Jesus Christ that I wanted to follow and be like, not individual human beings." Chieko Okazaki Dialogue interview

"I am coming to envision a new persona for the Church as humble followers of Jesus Christ....Joseph and his early followers came forth with lots of triumphalist rhetoric, but I think we need a new voice, one of humility, friendship and service. We should teach people to believe in God because it will soften their hearts and make them more willing to serve." - Richard Bushman

:lol: It kind of reminds me of something I saw on the news Friday evening. It was a spot about Easter egg hunts and one local pastor (local is relative here since I live in a rural area and the TV station is in a small city some distance away) was talking about their usual helicopter drop of Easter eggs. I can't say I've ever heard of that before, but the next day's report said thousands of kids showed up. No word on whether the helicopter actually did.

Once there was a gentile...who came before Hillel. He said "Convert me on the condition that you teach me the whole Torah while I stand on one foot." Hillel converted him, saying: That which is despicable to you, do not do to your fellow, this is the whole Torah, and the rest is commentary, go and learn it."

Funny stuff. I half expected him to say, "batten down the hatches!"

My favorite line is "The Easter Basket is Full, but the Tomb is Empty."

I ward had an Easter egg hunt that I was not part of (there are perks to not having young kids). I was told by a parent friend though that the first part of the hunt involved plastic eggs that were empty - it was that same idea, the egg is empty and so is the tomb. Whatever, I'm not sure many 6-year-olds (or 10-year-olds) would get it.

A local church put on an Easter egg hunt that was really well done. Before they took the kids out to the separate age segregated egg hunt fields, they had a short skit where a young person played the part of the Easter bunny and shared the true meaning of Easter with another young actor. Also, some of the eggs had golden coins inside that could be redeemed for Christian bibles or Christ centered storybooks rather than the large chocolate bunnies or basket of goodies that I have seen given away at some more secular Easter egg hunts.
