Like most holidays, Easter has become extremely commercialized. Shelf after shelf is lined with eggs, bunnies and chocolates. We fight to remember the reason for the season; Jesus Christ died on the cross, was resurrected three days later, and forever bridged the gap of sin that keeps us from God. Through the hustle and bustle of the holiday, we want to remember that. But how much do we fight to cherish it? To wrap ourselves up in it and really truly love it?
This semester at St. Thomas, students have been reading through Mark as well as King’s Cross by Tim Keller, which dissects that book of the Bible. As we were approaching Easter, the groups were finishing both books, which end at the resurrection.
