Have a Blessed Easter

As a Christian, Easter does not mean bunny rabbits and egg hunts, Easter is the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus. This celebration is spent on prayer and soul-searching on my behavior as Christain. 

One very important message I want to share, I support the rights of all religions. There are fringe groups that don’t count as religions to me. My Senior Paper explored the Muslim Religion, the spark of interest came after talking to two new guys from Jordon. 

This spark of interest in World Religions later became regular reading for me. I recently read parts of the Quran, and what a great surprise to read about people from the Bible from a different perspective. They were revered and believed Jesus was a Prophet. The religions that make up the Islamic Religion believe in God, just as the Jewish Religion believes.

Both Christians and Orthodox Christians celebrate the Easter Holiday with joyous church services, often punctuated with white lilies, followed by family meals and gatherings. Eastern Orthodox churches often hold a Paschal Vigil on Holy Saturday, the day before Easter, and a candlelight procession may be held that night, with Easter services and celebrations beginning at midnight.

Traditional Christian Easter meals often include ham, spring vegetables, and hot-cross buns (sweet rolls scored with a cross on top). At Orthodox Christian Easter dinners, along with red-dyed hard-boiled eggs, which are symbolic of the blood of Christ, lamb is typically served. John 1:29 says, “Behold the lamb of God which takes away the sins of the world.” Lamb also has a strong Jewish significance, as it was used as a sacrifice and is often served during Passover.

Have a blessed Easter.
