EASTER EGGS AND THE CROSS
Dear All Saints Preschool Families,
Why Easter eggs? I find myself wondering this most years around this time. I love Easter traditions but I also try, as a mom, to help my family redeem holidays from a completely secular tradition. A friend gave me a book this year about the legend of Easter eggs. Eggs, the book explained, are an ancient symbol of new life. Christians adopted this symbol to represent our new life in a resurrected Christ. Eggs are also symbolic of Christ breaking free of death in the tomb, as a small chick breaks free of his egg. Easter eggs can be a reminder that through Christ's death on the cross and resurrection, we too overcome death and have eternal life.
I like that symbolism. I like Easter egg hunts, and I invite you all to join us on Saturday, April 8 as All Saints hosts its first Easter Egg Hunt at 10:00 AM. It should be a wonderful time of friendship and fellowship.
