Whatever Spring means to you, I hope you will take a moment to consider the season of Easter. Im not speaking of Easter bunnies and candy eggs. (Although I love them both!) I am referring to the death and resurrection of Jesus our Lord. As a Christian, I am intrigued at the Easter story. The chain of events of just a few days in history is packed full of drama, intensity, sorrow and joy. I must admit that this season means more to me than Christmas time, because it exemplifies the entire plan of God for all of us. It is also free of all the commercialism, preparation and stress that the Christmas season brings!
Our church is putting on a dramatic depiction of the Easter story again this year. It’s called Reflections of Calvary. It is an interactive presentation in that the audience is right up close to the action. I am priviledged to be a part of this drama – this year I play Mary, mother of Jesus. It’s a lot of work and takes up our time, but we are always glad we did it.
I wish you all could come and witness our presentation, but, wherever you are, dont forget what Easter is all about. If you live in the Spokane, Washington area – come see us! Hide the eggs, bake the ham, gather with your family and enjoy this “holyday”.
