I want to make this a brief post today and let the videos do most of the talking but I do want to say a few words.
Easter, which most people would call a fun holiday filled with the easter bunny and egg hunts, and candy … Easter is actually about something even more important. It is about reflecting on the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Christ died and 3 days later He rose again. He overcame death, which means that one day we will as well.
“Easter is a celebration not only of the Resurrection of Christ but also of the universal Resurrection. Because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ, all people will be resurrected. Their bodies and spirits will be reunited, never to be separated again. Latter-day Saints know the truth of Paul’s statement, “But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. … For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive” (1 Corinthians 15:20, 22; see also Alma 11:42–45).”
Through Christ, all is possible. Each religion looks at and celebrates Easter in their own way. In The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints ….
“Latter-day Saints conduct Easter Sunday services but do not follow the religious observances of Ash Wednesday, Lent, or Holy Week. LDS Easter services traditionally review New Testament and Book of Mormon accounts of Christ’s Crucifixion, His Resurrection, and surrounding events. For these services, chapels are often decorated with white lilies and other symbols of life. Ward choirs frequently present Easter cantatas, and congregations sing Easter hymns. As at services on other Sundays, the emblems of the sacrament are passed to the congregation.”
