St. John's Easter Rock
Happy Easter to our Love City Car Ferries' Friends
If you grew up on St. John, you know Easter Rock. When we were kids the adults said that Easter Rock went down into the sea early each and every Easter morning and that is why it was always wet on Easter. We believed them and as teenagers we would sneak out to North Shore Road to try to see its descent. Of course we never witnessed this miraculous event, but nevertheless that rock remains a symbol of our childhood innocence. Some cultures have the Tooth Fairy and Reindeers and St. Johnians have their Easter Rock.
The thing about childhood is that it encourages dreaming, hoping, and believing. Sadly, the reality of our current World shatters that for most if not all adults and even teenagers. In light of the constant suicide bombers in various countries like Beirut, Cameroon, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, France, and now Brussels it is no wonder we all don't have tremendous anxiety about our future. But we still have a choice. We can choose to focus on hope.
Whether we are Christian or not, Easter reminds us of hope: hope in a Savior who has risen, hope in new beginnings, hope in the ultimate goodness of the human spirit and hope that good ultimately conquers evil.
Happy Easter and if you live on St. John remember to share with your kids the story of Easter Rock!
