Easter Blog Hunt

[ 6 ] Comments

by RI Editors

Holy Week this year has been full of online discussions and discourses. Gay marriage has been a hot button topic and as the post “Distracted” at You Make Me Smile points out it seems to have distracted us from the real meaning of the season. There is so much good content out there on websites and blogs from all faiths about Easter and Passover that we’d like to gather it all here to share with each other.

If you know of a great Easter themed post please share it here and tell us why you like it. It could be a simple blog post of testimony, a general conference talk, or a journalistic article discussing religious issues. Let’s steer away from contentious or angry posts so we can retain the Spirit as we blog hop. And of course if you have a personal blog post along these lines do share!

Thank you for contributing to the Real Intent community!

    I just read this (older) post by a brother who spoke on Easter Sunday in a small branch the day they were disbanding the branch. I loved his thoughts.

    This is a perspective on the apostle’s actions surrounding Christ’s death and resurrection that is inspiring: http://www.deseretnews.com/article/700198500/Apostles-became-fearless-preachers.html

    I couldn’t agree more! I noticed that the controversary was definitely taking many minds away from truly celebrating Easter.
    I bore my testimony on my personal blog here:
