This week I take a look at what came into my political inbox, snot, awards that are piling up for Bozeman, chickens, trophies, and much more! So sit back and enjoy another edition of Caught My Eye… Continue reading

There’s a seat for you!

This Sunday is Easter Sunday – a Sunday so important that even NASCAR’s Sprint Cup series takes it off.

I imagine they take the day off because it just wouldn’t be right drinking beer and eating pork rinds on Easter. Besides, there are Easter egg hunts to attend. (Calm down NASCAR fans, I’m just kiddin’ y’all).

According to this website, the exact date of Easter Sunday “varies because it is determined using a calculated lunar calendar. It is the first Sunday approximately after the first full moon on or after the March equinox.”

Well, alrighty then. Let’s just say it is a complex formula…and Easter is sometime in March or April. Here’s a handy-dandy website to help you plan your future Easters.

Easter is also the time when people attend church on Sunday – in fact some folks contend it is the most attended church service of the year. Christians (like me) believe that Jesus (the Son of God) came back to life (was raised from the dead) three days after he was crucified on the cross. Good Friday (the Friday before Easter Sunday) is when the crucifixion is commemorated. You can check out the story in Mark 15:16 through Mark 16:19. It is very touching.

The title of this column is “There’s a seat for you” and that’s because you should take time out of your busy schedule and attend Church this Sunday – a church of your choice – because there really is a seat for you at your local church. You’ll feel better after attending and many churches have services throughout the day to fit your schedule (so you and your friends don’t miss the Easter egg hunt).

Who knows…we may run into each other this Sunday!
