Easter


This video was made last year by the youth of my church. To me, this is pretty powerful viewing. Such a story has greater power when you imagine the characters involved are actually the friends you spend your free time with, and with whom you would share everything. I know the individuals in this video, and whilst I don't know them personally that well, re-evaluating the events depicted considering if they had been in my community, with these community members, strikes a very intimate chord.

This is the story of Easter. No chocolate eggs, no rabbits or fluffy chicks, but a harrowing tale from 2,000 miles away and 2,000 years ago.

And yes, those really are wrestling pandas.
