In case you aren’t aware of it, this weekend is Easter. I know, its nuts that it’s April already.
Easter is a big deal in the church, and you might be curious why. I mean, I understand the “big deal-ness” of it theologically and personally, but why is Easter a time where people feel drawn to the Church?
Honestly, I think the answer is simple: Easter is a time of great hope.
The story of Easter is filled with great sorrow, pain and agony, yet people are still drawn to it. Even with the graphic brutality that is native to Jesus’ journey from the Garden to Calvary, we want to hear the whole story.
