He is risen. However you choose to celebrate this day, I hope it’s a great one for you.
If I can be completely honest, for the past few years, I’ve literally had to remind myself when Easter comes around. Everyone in my household is too big for the Easter Bunny (not to mention we really don’t need the candy around), and not being actively involved in a congregation at this time, there’s not much else in my life to remind me of it. It wasn’t always that way. For the better part of my life working in the church, “Easter” equaled “work” for me, as each time it came around, we geared up for what was supposed to be the biggest Sunday of the year. Even before I was officially “in the ministry,” I was always deeply involved in the services, pageants, plays, etc., from my early teens on. So for the past couple of years, it’s actually come as a welcome rest for me not to have to do anything on Easter Sunday.
