Some Post-Easter Thoughts

It is typical among members of the Church, the American Church specifically, to slide back into their old habits immediately after Sunday.

Place your faith in Him, for He can save you from the wrath of God, because He has faced that wrath for you.

He is risen! This means so much more than just eternal salvation.

Trust Him.

He is risen!

However, as Spring and the Easter season approached my area, the town of Hershey, PA made a bold statement with their billboards and even the small flags that hang from their street lights along Main Street in Hershey.
