Here's why. At UBC, we are learning to follow the traditional Christian Church Calendar. There's lots of reasons why this is a good practice, not least of which is because it helps us to think Christianly about time. We'll deal with that more in other blog posts, but for now, what you need to know is you still have time to focus on what it means for us to be Resurrection People!
We are going to continue to celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord for several more weeks. In fact, we'll be remembering, reliving, and gazing on our risen Lord all that way to June 8, when we celebrate Penetecost.
If you are like me, sometimes it just takes more time for something to soak in. That's why holidays often don't seem like enough, and why seasons are so helpful.
Internet Monk has a terrific and very thoughtful article on why it is good to treat Easter as a season. I highly recommend it. You might want to check it out.
