What’s with the Chocolate Egg?

If you visit the Cadbury Museum (sounds dangerous) they have examples of chocolate hens, bells, fish and EVEN PIGS which were all the rage at Easter in the early 20th century.

Eventually, the egg became the dominant shape due mostly to convenience in production (an egg is definitely easier to make out of chocolate than a pig).

The modern Easter egg has taken on a life of its own.

These days there’s Crunchie eggs, Caramello eggs, Turkish Delight eggs, Cream eggs, Humpty Dumpty eggs with the smarties in them – I can’t keep up!
But I still hold a special place in my heart for the humble, empty Easter egg. Why?
Because just like the empty egg, Jesus’ tomb was found empty that first Easter Sunday. It’s not only why we celebrate Easter, it’s why we hold onto faith as Christians – it’s why we meet on Sundays!Without an empty tomb, our faith is also empty – that’s what Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 15:14   “And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty.”

Ultimately something’s gonna turn out empty.
Either Jesus’ tomb was empty, or our faith is empty.
And if you’d like to explore a faith that is full of hope, love and life, we’d love to have you join us for one of our upcoming Easter Services;
Confirmation of Easter Service times for The Centre at Dural.
Good Friday Service will be held at the earlier time of 9am followed by hot cross buns for morning tea after the service.
Easter Sunday Service will be held at the normal time of 10am.
Both services will be held in the main downstairs auditorium. Or email me at [email protected]
