D. B. and R.

It’s Easter time again. I’m glad that Easter, unlike Christmas, has not become so commercialized. Yes, there are the Easter eggs and Easter bunnies and egg baskets that parents purchase for the kids, but basically Easter has remained a religious event. Christian churches celebrate in different ways: some celebrate Lent; some have Maundy Thursday services; many have Good Friday services; and all have Easter Sunday services attended by committed Christians and the “holly and lily” crowd who only attend church at Christmas and Easter. As a gardener, I love to think of the proof of Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection as observed in many plants. Before a plant can grow from a seed, the seed must first be dried out (death). Next it must be put into the ground (burial). Finally, it emerges from the soil and begins life as a new plant (resurrection). It is this affirmation that gives me reassurance that the story death, burial, and resurrection of the Christ is true.
