The cross or the egg?

3429887423_9834976d02_oSo… a rabbit laid an egg?

We are just over the halfway mark for Lent, and I for one am getting tired of wearing sackcloth all the time. For devout followers of Christ, Lent can be a challenging, yet Holy time. Whether we give up or take on, our aim is to draw closer to God during this dark season of the year.

Our Canadian culture is becoming post-Christian; in fact, we might even be on the cusp of a post-Christian culture. More and more people know less and less of Jesus’ life and His sacrifice. It is easier to talk about a rabbit laying an egg than Jesus dying and rising.

Is there a way that we can take these opportunities and help begin the conversation—from a chocolate egg to a Risen Saviour? We are a few weeks away from Holy week and Easter celebrations—what can be done in your community to help bridge the gap?

Let’s share some ideas in the comments to help each other out.
