You're Invited: An Easter Tea Celebration

by Cathy Baker

With Easter just around the corner, I thought this might be the perfect week to share some ideas for an Easter Tea Celebration! Although we have the privilege of celebrating our NEW life in Christ every day, I can't imagine a better season to slow down, savor the depth of its meaning, and rejoice with others over a cup of tea.

It wasn't until recently that I realized Christ never asked His followers to celebrate His birth. Instead, He asked or commanded His followers to celebrate His death.

“..And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of me. Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is shed for you (Luke 22: 19-20).”

The Easter Tea doesn't include elements of the Lord's Supper, but Jesus is our focus. You won't find the "Easter Bunny" on this guest list! The sweet aroma of Christ is sure to stir meaningful conversation and memories that won't soon be forgotten. To God be the glory!

Cathy, I never thought about the fact that he said to celebrate his death, his sacrifice. Something to ponder for sure!

Thanks for stopping by, Mary! That particular truth stopped me in my tracks.

Blessings to you, my friend!
