Easter: He Is Risen; Family, Faith & Freedom

Penta-Posse at the Grand Canyon

Easter 2005 In this political season, every Presidential Candidate will be in church on Easter.

A photo op, if nothing else.

Two Easters back we traveled west on business and celebrated Easter in Arizona.

Your Business Blogger had the Family celebrate our Faith with tax supported Freedom at the government owned and operated Grand Canyon.

I remember asking the officiating pastor at Sunrise Service if liberals were attempting to shut down the event at Mather Point. Church/State and all that.

He said, “We’ve been having [Easter sunrise service] for decades. No one has bothered us.” Preaching on public land. Imagine.

Alert the (main stream) media. Call the ACLU.

The sponsoring church secures the permit and 1,600 people show up well before dawn. To watch the sun rise.

Which makes for the perfect photo op.

    I would have left this comment on the 4/05 post re: Easter sunrise but I couldn’t find a “comment” button!

    I don’t know if either of you have ever been to Israel or the Mt. Sinai, but I would urge you to go sometime. Your description of waking up at 3am to go to the sunrise service parallels the experience many people of many faiths, and probably a good number of those with no faith that has a name we’d recognize, have at Mt. Sinai.

    Mine occurred in December 1984. My younger brother was visiting me for two weeks in Israel (I was there on a volunteer program I learned about at Georgetown – Sherut La’am) and the Sinai was still part of Israel (it became Egypt in the summer of 85 I believe).

    We went on a tiyul into the Sinai, I think it was a three or four day thing, sleeping in Bedouin tents and so on. And it included ascending by foot to the top of Mt. Sinai before sunrise. You can see pictures from that morning here.

    Now – there was no service, it wasn’t a particular holiday (secular new years and Chanuka excluded) but it was a religious experience for me just the same.

    Should the service you attended on the Grand Canyone be allowed? I have no problem with it – but I would only want to be sure that anyone and everyone who wants the same would also get the permit. Are national parks in the habit of not allowing such things? I’m not familiar with that, but I see church and other kinds of picnics in our municipally run parks all over NE Ohio. So long as there is equal access, I fail to see that as government endorsement of religion – so long as there isn’t selective exclusion.

    If there are such cases, I hope you’ll point to them – I’m often called naive.

    Have a lovely holiday – we have several inches of snow here – no community Easter Egg Hunt – outdoors anyway.

    Ironically, the smell of the simmering matzah balls I’m making is permeating my workspace as I type this!

    I must have mixed up my html because the word “here” where there is supposed to be a picture of Mt. Sinai doesn’t work. Here’s the URL:
