Ask most children,
    and they will tell you that Easter
    is the day
    when the Easter bunny comes.
    It is a day of fun for children to
    hunt for eggs,
    receive chocolate candy bunnies
    and candy eggs.
    But as Christians,
    we look beyond the bunny
    to the true meaning of Easter.

    "So in Christ all will be made alive."
    the Bible says.
    That is the message that is
    the heart of Easter
    as we celebrate the great victory,
    Jesus Christ's resurrection.
    So this Easter
    let us look beyond
    the new clothes,
    chocolate eggs,
    jellybeans,
    and the Easter bunny.
    Let us keep the
    spirit of Easter alive
    in our celebrations today.
