What does Easter mean to you
I hope that A few of you will want to contribute to this thread Maybe even Non Christians
When I say the word ""easter" I am refering to "The Festival of The Crucifixtion and Ressurection of Jesus Christ" I am not referencing anything Pagan.
To me, Easter is an important time of year, not just because of the fact without the death and ressurection there is no ability for someone like me to have eternal life...but, more, because of the death and ressurection, someone like me actually does have eternal life...and what I struggle with most, and always have done...is the fact that I am 1) aware that someone like me does not deserve eternal life, and 2) that far from being a "Free" gift...which it is for me...it was NOT "Free" for the person who had to pay the price in order to fulfil the ability of exemption under the Law...and the thought of anyone being killed because of me is actually very hard for me to understand, and in many ways I feel horrible about the fact it had to happen.
Over the course of the last five years I created a short video, each year for easter
