Old Calendar LDS
« on: April 06, 2012, 01:05:23 PM »
Someone asked me if I'm celebrating Easter this weekend?
As a Mormon, I'm going to celebrate it next week along with the Eastern Orthodox and Apostolic churches.

I hope you've prepared to live forever.
Hello and good evening.

It that true?

When I saw the title of this thread I wondered if perhaps there was a typo, and the letters LDS were meant to be in a different order. As it turns out, there was no typo, but a strange question remains.  I wish I had an answer...

In my hometown, the LDS church sign was originally painted by a man with severe dyslexia. For a few brief days, people thought the most awesome church ever had been opened.

This is not a joke.
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

I grew up in a majority Mormon town and I have no recollection of them celebrating Easter on a separate day from 'Western' Easter (the only Easter I was aware of at the time).

On the other hand, I was in a church that was so sola scriptura (anti-tradition) that we didn't celebrate Easter at all (Bible doesn't mention an annual commemoration of the Resurrection, just the weekly one on Sunday) so maybe I was just that clueless about when anybody was celebrating Easter.

Now that I think of it, I'm not sure I've ever had a Mormon mention Easter to me.
