Yesterday was our annual Easter egg hunt in the park with a group of friends. On the way over in the car, Steffi was worrying about her eggs. Mollie turned to her and said, “Even if you didn’t get any candy, it doesn’t matter, because the real gift of Easter is Jesus raising from the dead.”
Not to be outdone by Mollie, Sophie added, “The Easter egg is all about new life. When Jesus died he gave us new life.”
Steffi wanted to show that, although only five, she too was a competent theologian, “Yes! Jesus died on the cross. That was very sad. But then he rose again! That’s a good thing.”
Indeed. A good thing. I think I’ve heard my Easter sermon.
