As Christians, Easter is a BIG deal. It’s not about some rabbit laying eggs as the world makes it out to be, it is about the Son of God conquering sin and death! Like the Apostle Paul states in I Corinthians 15, if Christ did not raise from the dead then “we are of all people most to be pitied.” Christmas is important, but without Easter Christmas has little meaning.
When folks are isolated and not able to attend church in person each opportunity to gather together becomes very important, especially Easter. Again this year several folks we visit through out the year were able to gather in one place. It was a great time of fellowship and renewal, something all of us look forward to; three days of visiting, talking, sharing and study. Can you imagine how special church would be to you if you could only attend in person a couple of times a year? This is how special Easter is for us and our friends in the bush. As the years go by we grow closer together and think of each other as family, brothers and sisters in Christ.
By the time lunch came around Easter Sunday we had twenty one people all in one place on the Kantishnia River. The only other time any of us could remember more of us in one place was at a wedding several years ago.
Anyone care to share how important Easter is to them?
