Christian Scouts Prepare for Easter

It is Easter Sunday and Christian Scouts around the world will celebrate the most significant event in the history of the world—the resurrection of Jesus Christ. In Britain and America, there are a great many Christian Scouts who celebrated Good Friday, which ended the 40 days of Lent preparing them for this holiday.

For them, this has been a time of fasting, prayer and service. Good Friday itself was a day of reflection for many, others off from school may have spent several days camping, but this Easter Sunday it is the duty of every Christian Scout to reverence the day of His resurrection.

For LDS Scouts and their families, the central focus is Easter Sunday, a day to remember His atoning sacrifice and resurrection. Whether you are with your Scouts or your family this weekend, we hope you’ll  enjoy and share this message, #Hallelujah—An Easter Message about Jesus Christ:

With your family or Scouts, take time today to write some thoughts of Christ. For me, Handel said it all 275 years ago with his composition, The Messiah. This was my post at Facebook:

I am glad for the new ‪#‎ProvoCityCenterTemple‬, but what I will miss most is the Messiah Sing-in we attended during the Christmas Holiday. For Easter this year on Good Friday, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir offered the ‪#‎MessiahLive‬! It was great! Perfect for ‪#‎Easter‬ and don’t skip the largest virtual performance of “Hallelujah” from Handel’s Messiah at FollowHim.mormon.org. Two thousand five hundred voices singing the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah

Think of someone who needs the peace of Christ or who needs to know about the Savior’s resurrection and share your message. If you are not sure how to share through Social Media, take our quick course at voiceofscouting.org/socialcert, I promise you will be pleased with the results.
