Easter is a great day to be in church, and on this particular year, it is not only Easter but also…. April Fools Day. Which opens up so. many. possibilities. to mess with the children in our lives today.
Possibilities to do things like this:
One parent unwrapped all the chocolate candy and used the wrappers to wrap us these grapes to put in their kids Easter basket. And what is a parent supposed to do with all that chocolate? Guess we better eat it.
Another parent filled Easter eggs. But not with candy. With vegetables.
Or there was another parent who was really committed and carefully filled this chocolate bunny… with mustard.
There is this Easter basket filled not with toys or candy but with …. cleaning supplies.
Or, I think this one’s my favorite- this person made cake pops with a chocolate coating surrounding…Brussel sprouts.
This Easter may be April Fool’s Day, but this Easter, like every Easter, we come together as the church. The lilies are ready. The music is prepared. The ham is cooking.
And, once again this year, we read the story of Easter in the Bible. The story of what happened on that Sunday morning nearly 2000 years ago is the most important story of why we believe Jesus was more than just a man.
