After Young Adult Ministry on Thursday the host of our home mentioned how cluttered Easter can get with eggs and bunnies and we can miss out on what it's all about. Flipping through TV channels later that night I ran into a South Park episode addressing the same thing. (Good question, despite the irreverence.) These things got me thinking more critically about what we do for Easter. How do we keep our girls (and us, really) focused on the fact that Jesus conquered death and not about bunnies, Peeps (which I love), and eggs?
My question for you is this: "What traditions does your family have to keep focused on the real meaning of Easter? Or what are some ideas you have for what you'd like your family to do?"
