    Sharon, thanks for posting that video .

    This is HUGE : the resurrection of Jesus from the dead . He died for us , and He rose from the
    dead to defeat death — for us ! If that does’nt get one’s heart a pumping nothing will !

    Hey all. Quick, sincere question:

    what do lds think of Easter?

  3. Bloom says:

    What I have noticed with LDS friends is that there seems to be much more emphasis on Christmas, rather than Easter, as a religious holiday. Some attention is paid to Easter Sunday but Good Friday gets a pass…I remember asking an LDS acquaintance what her church had planned for Good Friday, (I didn’t know much about Mormons at that point and just assumed they’d have a service) and receiving a blank look in response. I have since learned about the LDS belief that the Christ’s atonement took place in the Garden of Gethsemane, so that would explain the discomfort with Good Friday. I have since wished I had asked this person their thoughts on I Peter 2:24, which clearly states that Jesus bore our sins in His body while on the tree.
