Easter Tradition

 It has been said that a real barbeque is never complete without  lot of  smoke! Over the past Easter long weekend my neighbors could smell the pleasant and distinct aroma coming from the meat slowly roasting on my fire pit grill. Fifteen students and friends (one already married with his wife and little girl) came as guests and most of them were also participants of the Easter drama and choir that performed Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.

This cook-out is a tradition I started years ago with fear to offend my Catholic friends who do not eat meat during these days; but I found that they were eager to know if the Bible had any basis for this custom, giving me the opportunity to explain the whys of the first passover and the work of the Lord Jesus on the cross as the Lamb of God. Now many of them have been set free by the truth!

Why seek ye the living among the dead?

He is not here, but is risen!

  1. Andres,

    A very wonderful tradition. Especially as an outreach. Your service to the children, and community is a blessing. 5 new members into God’s family is great news.

    Praise God,
    Steve Barclay

  2. COOL!

  3. Me pareció muy bueno esto, Andrés. Espero que el humo no te haya causado algún problema en tus pulmones y si un buen sabor en tu estómago, je,je.
    Estoy agradecida que nuestro Señor no sólo murió, sino que resucitó ¡esta es nuestra esperanza, esta es nuestra fe!
    Saludos afectuosos!!!!!
