Easter in China

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESSAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES People of many countries, colors, and cultures celebrated Easter together at Hangzhou International Christian Fellowship in eastern China on April 5, 2015.  The church was packed, and many people stood or sat at the sides and sang joyfully together to celebrate that God loved the whole world so much that He sent His Son, Jesus, to die for sins of everyone and then rise again with a promise of eternal life.  The Nigerian pastor spoke about Christ’s resurrection and message of love, hope, and unity.  Asians, Africans, Europeans, Middle Easterners, North and South Americans, and others posed among spring flowers on this special day as 2 billion more earthlings in different time zones joined the song of life in a world that too often promotes death. This year, Easter came just after Good Friday, the day Christians remember Christ’s sacrificial death, which also fell on the first night of Passover.  A blood moon eclipse also appeared on Passover.  China’s national holiday, Tomb Sweeping Day, was the same day as Easter.  During Tomb Sweeping Day, Chinese people honor their ancestors by cleaning graves and placing special items on them.  They also take a spring outing with their family and wear flowers or leaves on their heads. Read about my experiences with Easter in my books.  Watch videos of the Hangzhou church singing together, women dancing, and children giving a special presentation.  See me teach about Passover and Easter.  Celebrate!
