Does Easter really have to end?

April 18, 2009
By The Rev. Harold Langevin Jr., Senior Pastor of the Ellamore Charge of the United Methodist Church

Last week many Christians relived the events that led to the death and Resurrection of their Lord, Jesus Christ. The churches I serve on the Ellamore Charge had opportunities to view Mel Gibson's "The Passion" on Wednesday evening, participate in the Last Supper at the Maundy Thursday service, carry lit candles to the foot of the cross at the Good Friday service and to experience the Resurrection at the Easter sunrise service. Close to 30 children came to the Easter egg hung on Saturday where they heard the passion story utilizing 12 different colored plastic eggs containing different items that helped us remember what happened that final week. However, there was one egg out of the 12, the final egg that was empty representing the empty tomb. The many emotions of self-denial, betrayal, sorrow, bitterness, loss, pain, suffering, torment, as well as hope, love and joy could have been felt at any one of these opportunities during Holy Week and Easter Sunday.
