The Reason for the Season

We’ve pretty much all heard the “reason for the season” phrase. Generally it is used at Christmas time to remind people that we celebrate Christmas because it is Jesus’ birthday first and foremost. However, there is another holiday that is so secularized that we forget the literal reason for the season, and that is Easter. Or as many call it, Resurrection season. Jesus is the whole reason for that season. To deny that fact and leave it out of our celebrations denigrates the whole season to nothing more than a pagan holiday. Cute, colorful, fun, but without meaning or purpose. Pastor Shayna helps us turn our attention to the real reason for the upcoming Easter season: Jesus.
