Bear Theology Jamboree.Title: “God Gave Us Easter”

Blurb: “As Little Cub celebrates Easter with Papa, Mama, and her brother and sister, she begins to ask her papa questions about this very special day of the year. Papa lovingly explains God’s plans for his children, while taking Little Cub on a memorable walk through her stunning Arctic world, and he shares how Easter came about in clear, simple terms that even the littlest cubs can understand.”

Review: “I think the story does not progress in a logical order. Papa Bear mentioned that God had a plan for Easter from the beginning, but the hopping back and forth does not show it. I think younger ones might miss the meaning of Easter in the midst of discussions of the ‘root of Jesse’ and the river running to the sea. I also have an issue of animals dealing with theology, but that is a topic for another post.”

Footnote: “Just like the shell cracks open and a chick comes out, we remember that Jesus was in a tomb… but he didn’t stay dead.” Our inner seven-year-old advises a bullet to the head.

I doubt that the Pagans who originally “had” easter and whose traditions were stolen from them would be happy to hear that.

Season Finale of The Walking Dead is on Easter Sunday. Coincidence? I think not, what better way to celebrate Zombie Jeeebus Day?!

@Benedick: The pugs get a free pass. All dogs go to Heaven.

@nojo: Friday was the anniversary of my fur-baby going to The Big Dog Park and Fire Hydrant Ass-Sniff Festival in the Sky. One of several reasons why I wasn’t trash-talking/rending garments during basketball games.
