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!

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.

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...

I'm a cynical observer about the great salvation that allows many to hold up their hands and exclaim how saved they are. Regardless of what it was...

Grace is something else though.

Graceful behavior has a power that accepts crudity and non criminal anti social behavior for the frustration it is.

Misspelling, poor expression of an idea or just plain anger at what one would like to understand, can be resolved and given merit with a simple, graceful reply.

This is not like having to agree unconditionally, it's more like having some respect for other walks of life.

Well said Mr. Brennan. Grace is one of the most beautiful words I have ever met. Because I need it so much in my own life I try to give it in abundance to others.

The front of my house recently became a parable of Grace.

When i think of Easter, i think mainly of family and my youth, the baskets with thoise plastic eggs that had coins in them, or a chocalte bunny foir a surprise when waking up. Yeah i knew very early my parents were the easter bunnies bu that never hampered the mystique really. I guess i could have chose to think of every angry thing a christian has ever done, but i went the other way. Today Easter means talking with my remaining family at least on the phone, and remembering those great times. Easter egg hunts were great fun!

Lol. Yes many religions contain lot's of hypocrites. And were started by hypocrites that wanted to control the stupid. Lots of people that go to churches are dishonest pieces of sh#t. Some people who work in churches are there only to gain access to children so they could molest them. Some priests ride in 1000000$ cars, and ask regular church goers for donations to the church. There are lot's of sick people out there who pretend to be Christians/Muslims/or whatever, who do not live by anything they CLAIM to believe. However, there are some individuals out there that got important lessons out of reading the Bible/Koran/etc, were able to transform their life, and do their best to be a decent human. My understanding of decent human does not involve hatred, murder, child molesting, or beliefs that my religion is superior to what other people believe. And I don't claim to be a saint neither haha. Just saying Christianity could help lot's of people, teach us to be better, but it depends on us, how we use it...teaching your children good lessons and spending time with them (like micronut) over Easter is not a bad thing. I do not see a reason to spray hate into this thread...

Lynne, this means we should 'respect' our neighbors and be nice and 'civil' to them. Doesn't mean they aren't as#@&%es.

Had a chat with an 88yr-old chick at 7-11 today, registered Democrat she later told me. She was spouting off at the clerk about culture decay. I decided to chat with her.

Cool lady. Just very concerned about the future. I tried to reassure her and wish her happy Easter.

She has me and John for the future. And many like us.

I guess I'm crazy, but I think if you practice loving someone, eventually (has taken quite some time with a few people) you end up liking them. It has much to do with the American Indian philosophy that if you walk in their moccasins you understand why they are and who they are. Happy Monday, lynnie

Happy Monday to you, Lynne, and to Micronut, bluering, Ron, the Captain, and to everyone else. I was too busy celebrating Easter to visit ST yesterday, so I just now read your beautiful post on grace. About all I know about grace, other than its definition (unmerited favor) is that I've received way more grace than I've given, or will ever be able to give, and yet I still keep stumbling and need (and receive) more grace to cover it. In that I remain joyously grateful.

One of the best Easter Sundays ever. Coffee and a newspaper. Killer Eggs Benedict. Aimed the guitar amp towards the neighbor houses and gave them a show they did not necessarily want. Took orchids over to our 93 year old neighbor Ken. 2 hour power nap. 90 minute rod bike ride. Steak chimichangas and the latest episode of Shameless on Showtime.
