Easter weekend brings many meanings to many different people, communities and cultures. So, what does this Easter holiday mean to our students at Missouri Baptist University? We’ve asked a few of our journalism writing students to blog about what Easter means to each of them, personally.

As we approach Easter Sunday, the most reverent day in the lives of Christians and the most important day in the history of mankind, how do we make sure it does not become just another day of colorful eggs, bunnies and spiral hams? How do we — collectively or individually — ensure that we recognize what Jesus Christ did for the world?
In a day and age where Easter has lost its meaning in many secular circles, it is important to be reminded that we are celebrating the very foundation of everything we believe as Christ followers. Easter eggs, bunnies and candy are great, but the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, which allows sinners to enter into His presence, that is what we celebrate on Easter Sunday. Today’s blog asks MBU Timeline writers a simple question: What does Easter mean to you?

The foundation of Christianity is Jesus and his resurrection. With such a prominent moment in history documented through the holiday Easter, how did the bunny come about? The symbol behind this creature and its origin is linked back to a pre-Christian era and makes more sense than it appears.
