I love Easter! The changing weather, bright colors, three day weekend and knowing the semester is almost over brings something exciting to look forward to. Not only that, but I feel so lucky to be able to openly celebrate the single most important event that embodies my faith. Jesus rose from the dead over 2,000 years ago, just for me (and you)! If that isn’t something to celebrate, I don’t know what is.
This allows us to have security in the knowledge that we are forgiven and we know where we will spend eternity. Without Christ’s great sacrifice and conquest of sin, we wouldn’t have the great hope we now have. Maybe that is part of the reason we bring out the bright colors around Easter, they symbolize hope and rejoicing!

Even though he wasn’t expressing these opinions in class and had an impressive array of awards, recommendations, and accomplishments, the university used this excuse to deny him the promotion he had applied for.
