 Happy Resurrection Sunday!!

Most of us already know that "Easter" was a pagan celebration of spring which drew its name from its patron Goddess Eastre (whose earthly symbol was a bunny). In the pagan worship of Eastre, during this celebration of spring, eggs were wrapped in gold leaf etc. (as a sign of rebirth) and given as gifts.

So, in our church last year we decided to stop using the name Eastre.

We called Sunday 'Resurrection Sunday' - and loved it!

This year, we are doing the same, and though it is a small thing, it did bring us much joy to see God glorified above this pagan diety.

My Prayer for today is:
"Lord Jesus, I need You. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and trust You as my Savior. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be. Thank You that I can trust You,and God Bless all my brothers and sisters here, and may God continue to use this forum to find the lost and bring them in and lead them to the posts that will witness and minister to them in Jesus name I pray.
AMEN!
