Hope: What Easter is Really All About – 033

Easter is packed with overflowing baskets, Easter egg hunts, and fashionable attire, yet this day is so much more. We don’t want to let the fun activities become the essence of this holiday. If we do, we’re missing it. Taking a few moments to reflect on “the big day” of their faith, Darlene and Julie share personal thoughts, what it means to each of them and the hope this day can provide for all.

You might want to review some of the passages we discussed on your own. Check out Philippians 3:20-21 and Revelation 21:4
