Happy Easter yall. I usually stay away from non climbing threads, but Easter is a really special day for me and my family and I hope it ends up being so for many of you. To me, and those who believe in the Christian Faith, this day is a really neat reminder of a kind and loving creator and the miracle of his resurrection. Yeah, I believe Jesus, the dude from Nazareth in the Bible, was God in carnate. A sinless man. Perfect. Fully man and fully God. Crucified and miraculously raised from the dead. Continued to do great things here on Earth until he was taken up into heaven. Call me crazy. But it shapes me as a man and a father and husband and grateful steward of all I have and can be.

So, whatever your day holds tomorrow, be it Bunnies or BBQ or chocolate or family or alone time or climbing or whatever, I wish you a day filled with gratitude above all.

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. " John 3:16

Happy Easter.

Scott

A glorious Happy Easter to you all! HE is Risen.....HE is Risen, INDEED!!!

In John 20:8, John is telling the story of the resurrection in the 3rd person..interesting. It is helpful to know a certain custom of the day to fully understand the implications of John's words.

Back in those times, feasts would last for days. The giver of the feast would have his guests recline at a large table, and servants would continue bringing courses of food. As the feast went on, the host would often treat his guests to tours of his fields or vineyards, his farm animals, his gardens, etc.

He would communicate with his servants non-verbally in regards to the intentions regarding the feast. He did so in the following manner....if he wanted to tell his staff that the meal was over, he would leave his napkin cloth in a heap at his place at the table...this would tell his staff that they could clear the table....that he and his guests would not be back.

However, if he folded his linen cloth neatly, and left it at his place setting, the message was.....keep serving, I'll be back.

When John entered the tomb, scripture says that he saw the burial linen folded....he "saw, and believed". He knew the implication....."keep serving, I'l be back."

HE is Risen...INDEED!

:D

Happy Easter! I'm not a Christian, but I think Jesus was cool, and I respect all people who live with love and caring for others as their focus.

I worship nature, so I celebrate birth, renewal, fertility, life force, evolution, the wonder of eco-systemic complexity.

For 33 years my tribal family has celebrated a reunion in Yosemite for Easter, with brunch at the Awhannee! So here we are...used to cost $8.00...today....never mind...but worth it just for the long term tradition the now grown kids won't let us change.

Happy Easter! Here is the morning view from Lynda's Foresta house...top of El Cap wreathed in clouds...

This little dude showed up a few days before easter, and has shown no sign of leaving. He hasn't told me what he thinks about god or Jesus, but he says that the weeds in my yard are really delicious -- especially the dandelions -- and that there's this one bush that is so dense no coyote can get to him when he ducks into it.

Happy Easter to you too micronut! God bless you and your family.


PS: As Christians let's remember that going to church, or posting quotes from the bible on the internet does not make us Christians. It is about contributing positive actions to this universe. Most of us are sinners, but let's try to do more positive than negative out there...
