The Easter Bunny Cometh

I just learned from my illustrious wife that the bunny is in fact a very appropriate symbol of Easter. What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think about bunnies? After candy, the next most common reply would be fecundity (Fruitfulness. Absurd fertility. Astounding rates of reproduction.)? What better symbol than the rabbit to better bring to mind the hope that there is such an absurd overabundance of grace and rejuvenating power in Christ that all will be reborn, and if we follow him, all our sins can be blotted out.

(on a lighter note, as I was looking for pictures of bunnies, I found this amusing website.)

ok, the bunny suicide page had some funny ones - like the Ark, but it was also kinda gross! Especially the images of bunny body parts flying around.

Maybe instead of an easter basket, we should build a little model of Wymount as a symbol for Easter.
