Today, for our Kids in the Kingdom Sunday, we revisited the Stations of the Cross trail we last visited for the March Kids in the Kingdom. This time, we spoke of the Stations of the Resurrection and 14 appearances of Jesus after his death from the earthquake and the empty tomb to the ascension and then his appearance to Saul in a vision.
After a tour of the stations with the ongoing refrain of Alleluia! He is risen. The Lord is risen indeed. Alleluia! we ate pizza and then the kids went back out for an Easter Egg hunt with lots of prize eggs.
Why still in Easter? This is Eastertide, the Sundays of Easter between the great feast itself and Pentecost Sunday 50 days later. The entire season is a time of remembering Jesus' resurrection and these appearances to his disciples and others.
