Ever since my daughter did her first egg hunt, I had a thing about Easter. It seemed incongruent to the rest of our holy-days. Jesus was born on Christmas and wow–we put a dead tree in our house, decorate our front lawns, play Christmas music for a month and give outlandish gifts to everyone including the postman.
Easter has baskets and bunnies, eggs and new dresses. Easter might have an egg hunt at church and an empty egg for the tomb. There are a hand full of Easter books in the bookstores. There’s only a few songs about Jesus coming back to life.
But do we really make Easter–the day we celebrate Jesus’ death and resurrection–his sacrifice and miraculous gift to us–a celebration? Do we really spend time telling the story to our kids? Experiencing the meaning with them?
A Sense of the Resurrection will help you do just that.
12 simple activities to be done the few weeks before Easter will turn your home into a memorial to Jesus’ death and resurrection. You’ll experience Jesus’ anointing, the Last Supper, Peter’s denial, the cross, the empty tomb and more.
