Luke 24:13-25
SVBC Easter Sunday Service

 I’m going to start today with a question that may seem a bit weird.  It may seem weird because of your definition of a word in the question.   So, here’s the question.  How will you respond to Easter?  Some might find this question weird because it seems to ask something ridiculous.  If you see Easter primarily as a holiday weekend in the Spring, there’s nothing to respond to.  We have choices on how to use our time this weekend.  But it’s not like the Easter holiday weekend calls for a response from us.  This view of Easter is quite common.  I did a search for the news about Easter.  Do you know what the top news story about Easter was on Thursday?  What’s open and closed on Easter weekend?  So if we think Easter just refers to a holiday weekend in the Spring, we see no need to respond.
