I’m not sure if I am going to do this next week. We are have several things coming up, starting next weekend. And I’m looking forward to all the time with family and friends coming up. I’m not sure how much I am going to do this over the next several weeks.

But since this Sunday is the celebration of the Resurrection, let’s look at some memories I have of that time. For those that don’t know, when I was young, we used to move around every five years or so. I was about four when we moved to a beautiful town in the mountains. And when we moved away from there five years later, I remember returning to this town several years for this weekend of celebration.

Sometimes we would gather with Christian friends to celebrate the Passover meal together Thursday evening. I know sometimes we were just learning about the celebration. But sometimes we actually did the whole meal together, and I loved those dinners together. I don’t remember going to any Good Friday services growing up. Though that is something we do at the church I am part of now.

But Sunday mornings, having sunrise services on that cold mountain top, who could forget? We would get up while it was still dark, and we would again meet with other Christians to celebrate that indeed Christ is risen from the dead. We would go to church and keep celebrating. And then the afternoons were huge dinners with friends.
