Lent: Jesus is the Reason for this Season Too

Do you remember the unique way that Glassport Assembly of God church celebrated Easter in 2004? This Pittsburgh area congregation put on a community Easter pageant at a local stadium. Families from all around brought their young 'uns to see Easter bunnies and brightly colored chicken eggs.

Then in the midst of the drama, actors came out with whips and beat the Easter Bunny to death, causing quite a stir from the 3 and 4 year-olds etc. in the audience. It seems the church wanted to make the point that we should be commemorating the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus instead of bunnies and eggs. And the point is a good one. Their hearts were in the right place. . . . sort of.

But there probably would've been a better way. All this did was make their church look like a bunch of jerks.
