The Christian calendar presents a wonderful opportunity to share your faith with your readers.
I have found that—even though some of my readers may not be Christians—most of them celebrate Christian holidays in a "secular" manner. What a great opportunity to tell them more about the true meaning behind the holidays (while encouraging your Christian readers, too).
A highlight of the Christian calendar, Easter is April 4 this year. Make plans now to include special Easter-related posts during the days leading up to the observation of Christ's death, burial, and resurrection.
Scripture is so rich with details of the events surrounding Easter. Simply focusing on the Biblical account is a great way to inform and educate your readers.
Celebrate Easter on Your Blog by Re-telling the Bible Story
Use your blog to re-tell the events of Christ's last week by:
- Planning posts for each day of the week, using Scripture references to outline Jesus' final days.
- Using the different gospel accounts to compare/contrast details about Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection.
- Having a movie marathon. Post clips from the various accounts on your blog and tell the story through film.
- Asking your pastor or Bible study teacher or another guest to write a post on the events of Holy Week.
- Posting a Bible study, outlining the Old Testament Scriptures that foreshadow Christ's death and resurrection.
- Researching and writing about the medical account of how Christ would have died by crucifixion (a terribly painful thing to read but also important at understanding the sacrifice of our Lord).
How will you incorporate Easter into your blog this year?
Tomorrow, we'll look at celebrating Easter on your blog with arts and crafts ideas. Later in the week, we'll discuss sharing Easter recipes and family traditions with your readers.
