On Facebook this morning, some one had written “why is Good Friday ‘Good’?” If you’re like me, the lead up to Easter has been exciting. I mean a long weekend, and hot cross buns, and chocolate! We have family down for the weekend, so what isn’t good about that???
Last night we met with our home church for an early Easter service, and I was trying to explain to Meg about what Easter means to us. She understands about Christmas. A little baby who is born to be a king, is something she gets. It’s harder to explain how that little baby grew up to be a man who was killed because he was God’s son.
Yet for us as Christians, this is at the core of what we believe. I found this video (love YouTube!), which explains simply why Easter is so important to Christians.
