On Easter — What/Who is a Christian?

Filed under: Religion — admin @ 2:50 pm

Interesting that of all my friends’ Easter-related Facebook posts today, exactly one was a traditional religious message. Most posts represented secular spin-offs from Easter, while a few related to spring and the attendant seasonal renewal. I’m a universalist Quaker who could be indentified with faithfulness to continuing revelation in the Christian tradition (there’s a book in those words – must ask in person if interested). I may not be “traditional” but at the same time am not really comfortable with an emphasis on the accoutrements of Easter (eggs, clothing, food, etc.). Family gatherings are beautiful, and if this is the opportunity, that’s wonderful. But that does not make it Easter.
