Teaching Young People about Easter

Found this outside of the door of the First United Methodist Church yeterday.

In front of the sanctuary door of First Church in Crystal Lake is product of a pre-school class that meets at the Methodist Chruch.

It’s a little flower pot on its side in front of three crosses.

Next to the pot is a rock symbolizing the empty tomb from which Jesus arose.

  1. On the way to church to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord; and am in a great spirt and frame of mind as a result.


    You guessed it; another story. ( He hears the moans from across McHenry County. )

    A man is driving along the highway and see a rabbit in the middle of the road.

    He swerves to avoid hitting it, but unfortunately the rabbit jumps right in
    front of the car.

    The driver, a sensitive man as well as an animal lover, pulls over and gets out to see what has become of the rabbit.

    Much to his dismay, the rabbit is the Easter Bunny, and he is DEAD .The
    driver feels so awful that he begins to cry.

    A beautiful blonde woman driving down the highway sees a man crying on the side of the road and pulls over. She steps out of the car and asks the man what’s wrong.

    “I feel terrible,” ! he explains, “I accidentally hit the Easter Bunny with
    my car and KILLED HIM.”

    The blonde says ,”Don’t worry.” She runs to her car and pulls out a spray
    can. She walks over to the limp, dead Easter Bunny, bends down, and sprays the contents onto him.

    The Easter Bunny jumps up, waves its paw at the two of them and hops off down the road. Ten feet away he stops, turns around and waves again, he hops down the road another 10 feet, turns and waves, hops another ten feet, turns and waves, and repeats this again and again and again and again, until he hops out of sight.

    The man is astonished. He runs over to the woman and demands, “What is in that can? What did you spray on the Easter Bunny ?”

    The woman turns the can around so that the man can read the label. It says..

    (Are you ready for this?)

    (You know you’re gonna be sorry) … (Last chance)

    (OK, here it is)

    It says, “Hair Spray …… Restores life to dead hair, and adds permanent


  2. Actually Cindy after more thought I remembered, Anno Domini, which is Latin for “year of our Lord”, was calculated late on the Juliana calender by three years by most scholars.

    So since Jesus was about 33 years old when he died, that would be 1,981 years ago.

    Just a Biblical fact.

  3. You’re an idiot, Nob. It’s a greeting those who serve the risen Lord use. It has nothing to do with your history lessons! But out if you don’t understand!

  4. Cindy can’t even be pleasant on Easter

    Nob, don’t mind her. She’s immobile and probably couldn’t even make it to church today let alone cook Easter Brunch, so she takes it out on us

  5. This is what compassionate conservative Easter tough love looks like. Long life to our sunshine blog and brilliant conservative commenters! Tic tock, tic, tock…(this is copyrighted, by the way…)

  6. Moderate is (of course) again 100% wrong. She lies and makes things up so much that even she doesn’t know what fiction she is talking about. I happened to have spent a lovely day at my eldest daughter’s house; enjoying her family, conversation, and a wonderful home cooked meal on this beautiful day God granted us. Dinner was delicious. Too bad blubber-mouth has no one to talk to because she is so evil. She might have enjoyed the day too had she not been so preoccupied over stalking me.

  7. Did you tell your eldest kids how you treat people on the internet?
    How you are Christ like?
    How you treat people how you want to be treated?

  8. Coming from the liar that called me pond scum over and over.

    Nice try, Satan.

    Get behind me!

  9. Matthew 7:1-3King James Version (KJV)

    7 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

    2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

    3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

  10. Only an idiot liberal would cherry pick those verses with no real understanding of what it really means. You are using it as the lie straight from Satan just like he wants you to do. (It is Satan’s favorite quote.)You are in league with Moderate. Get behind me Satan!

  11. Pope suggests it’s better to be an atheist than a bad Christian, like you Love!

  12. Never claimed to be a Christian. But I must say, quoting the “Pope” is a sure sign that you are a complete idiot. You never even discerned the meaning of Ephesians (as demonstrated by your [imagined] snappy comeback); why would anyone think you have a handle on “He is Risen, indeed!” Do you even realize how truly foolish you are? Direct from Satan’s mouth to your keyboard – It is better to deny your creator than to be a hypocrite. Nice try, Satan. I say again, Get behind me, Satan!

  13. “I’m quoting the Bible but I am not a Christian, blah, blah, blah, blaaaaahhhhhhh…” Welcome to your nonsense sunshine paradise blog. 2018, please do not delay…tic tock, tic, tock…

  14. Angel? We are all one race. It is called man. Those who wish to create dissension by labeling will not be victorious in anything. You think your strong points are in labeling. Sad, for you.

  15. “Those who wish to create dissension by labeling will not be victorious in anything.”
    “you are a complete idiot.”
    “Get behind me Satan!”
    “Too bad blubber-mouth has no one to talk to because she is so evil.”

  16. The moron Angel, thinks women are a different race from men; and the moron, The Nob is totally clueless on discernment or how to war against spiritual wickedness. Instead of trying to stay “on top” with your taunting (witless brainwashed) remarks, why don’t you take heed and look into getting some knowledge that would enhance your standing with your creator?

  17. I’m reading disingenious words from a over barrrrrrrrrrring know it all who claims to be religious but really isn’t.
    Love ya friend.
