Just rolls off the tongue doesn’t it?
Never heard of it?
Oh you must not be from Seattle. In a Seattle school, a student had the idea of adding candy and other goodies into plastic eggs for – um, well – Easter.
At least that is what we used to call it.
The article is here:
Apparently a week before, some rules were drawn up by the school to be more – you guessed it – politically correct. So the answer? No problem, as long as you call them spring spheres. I am chuckling as I write this. Spring spheres? Really? It amazes me the lengths we go in this country to stamp out any evidence of Christianity. Now the word Easter can’t be used either. I haven’t written about these issues before, simply because they are not always so black and white. But this one – really – how ridiculous can we get America?
In a way I should not be surprised. Jesus told us this would happen. He told us it would not be easy to follow Him. This is what He told his disciples.
“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master. If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin. Whoever hates me hates my Father as well. If I had not done among them the works no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin. As it is, they have seen, and yet they have hated both me and my Father. But this is to fulfill what is written in their Law: hey hated me without reason.”
We should rejoice when we see and hear these things. It is the fulfillment of what Jesus told us would happen when we chose to follow him. Jesus won’t be stamped out by these ridiculous attempts. If anything, His light will shine through even brighter. Most people who hear about this realize the feeble attempt that it is. No attempt to extinguish the light of Jesus will succeed, because there is no greater good than the forgiveness of sin, through the blood of Jesus Christ.
I thought it was quite funny, and important to note, how the students reacted when they received their spheres.. The teacher made it a point to call them “Spring Spheres” and instead the students called them Easter eggs.
Divine justice my friends!
