"Easter is meant to be a symbol of hope, renewal and new life".
While the eggs symbolise new life, the Easter Bunny is more popularly recognised as the judge of good and evil in Christian folklore. "Christ Jesus is the one who died-more than that, who was raised- who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us". In this moment, more than ever, we must strive to be more like Jesus. We are commemorating the resurrection because it was the first day of the week that Jesus rose from the dead. The greatest way we can do that is to do what the first disciples did.
