Celebrating the Easter Spirit (and its costumes)

My best wishes for a peaceful and joyous Easter to everyone, regardless of your faith or celebration preference. Spring, with its promise of renewal, is upon us! We read these words from Paul’s epistle to the Hebrews in church this morning:

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us rid ourselves of every burden and sin that clings to us, and persevere in running the race that lies before us…Make straight paths for your feet, that what is lame may not be dislocated but healed.

And for those who participate in the modern version of a certain pre-Christian fertility ritual, click here or on the picture below to see a fun collection of fitness activities featuring people (and other creatures) dressed up in bunny costume. Wow.
