Happy Easter to everyone! Today’s post is another short one for this important holiday weekend (it also marks sixteen weeks of daily posts—shew!).
Jesus Christ died for our sins around 2000 years ago, and was resurrected three days later. Today, Christians all over the world celebrate His death and resurrection, and eagerly await His eventual return.
According to Scott Rasmussen, 74% of Americans will celebrate Easter today, but only 40% of Americans will attend church (but, hey, that’s better than nothing). He also writes that 67% of Americans believe Jesus Christ arose from the dead—one of the more heartening statistics I’ve read in awhile, considering Pat Buchanan’s recent piece about our declining public morality.
Enjoy a day of fellowship and family. And if you have time, check out my old “Lazy Sunday” compilation of pieces about Christianity.
