We are just a few days away from the strangest Easter we’ll (hopefully) ever experience. No church service where everyone is dressed up. No community egg hunts. No visits with the Easter Bunny. So, I’m trying to figure out how I can make sure Easter doesn’t feel like just another day in isolation. How can we make the best of a bad situation? I’m so glad you asked! Here are my ideas from my tiny corner of the world – my neighborhood, my family, & in my own heart…
Our neighborhood is small with a gossipy, I mean, active Facebook group. (Probably once a week there is a post about either gunshots or missing cats or the lights flickering!) The positive of this is that they’ve been coordinating different activities to entertain the kids.
All the days are blending together, so how can I prepare my heart to celebrate Christ’s resurrection?
And looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back—it was very large. And entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed in a white robe, and they were alarmed. And he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him.
How are you planning to make Easter special this year? Any ideas for how we can reach out to our community? The essential workers? Give me more ideas in the comments – I’ve apparently got time on my hands!
