Chocolate bunnies and cultural conquest

Seth Godin’s Chocolate Bunnies post got me thinking. I know the church has been very creative in adapting pagan symbols and using them to spread the gospel. I think that’s a good thing…for the most part.

But can you imagine Moses adopting a frog as the symbol of Passover? Frogs were an Egyptian fertility symbol and Passover became a spring feast. Yuck.

Let’s be sure to continue to be thoughtful and prayerful as we seek to reach out to the communities around us!
