Easter is uhhh…..

I was just reading through a Barna report about what Americans believe Easter is all about.  Here are some of the statistics:

-67% relate it to some sort of theistic religious element.

-42% say the meaning is the resurrection of Christ or that it signifies Christ’s death and return to life.

-2% say that it is the most important holiday of their faith.

-2% of Americans said Easter is about the birth of Christ.

-2% say it is about the rebirth of Christ.

-1% say it is about the second coming of Jesus.

-3% say it is a celebration of a spring of pagan holiday.

-13% were not sure how to describe Easter.

-8% say the holiday means nothing to them.

Just some things to ponder as we march through Holy Week toward your Easter celebration.
