Throw A Party! For He Has Risen

The Lord’s Table, then, isn’t just a visual aid to remind us, as though it were a memory-jogging tool. As we gather together around the Table, we are being trained to eat at the “big table” in Jerusalem. And we’re announcing to ourselves, and to the satanic powers in the air around us, what’s really true. “Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die” is a sham. The alternative is not a refusal to eat, drink or be merry. That would be ingratitude. Instead, with the resurrected Jesus we sing out, “Let us eat, drink, and be merry, for yesterday we were dead.” –

Besides sharing good food, which I wrote about here, can you think of other party ideas for celebrating the resurrection this Easter season?
