Easter is the most recognized day to signify Rebirth and Renewal,

much as our own Declaration of Independence is recognized

as signifying the birth of a New Nation.

From the earliest settlers’ Colony at Roanoke (1586) Easter played an important role in the colonists’ lives. Even Ben Franklin marks time in Poor Richard’s Almanac with his quotable “He that would have a short Lent, let him borrow Money to be repaid at Easter.” Ben (as Poor Richard) would go on to stress the power of Debt to enslave men to their creditors. Along with other great thinking, Ben would ponder the origins of the Egg as a symbol of Easter and rebirth.

And try as some might to paint George Washington as a Deist,

his very Tomb refers to the promise of Easter listing the phrase

I Am The Resurrection And The Life…”.

Likewise, the Jefferson Memorial

is a favored location for Easter Sunrise Services.

This Easter Sunday will provide many

opportunities to celebrate locally.
