Sometimes, I just have to smile


Yesterday morning I was told about The Springs Church in Murphy’s Easter outreach, which includes dropping 5,000 Easter eggs from a helicopter to start its Easter egg hunt. Feel free to read the statement again. I had to. 5,000 Easter eggs floating to the ground after being dropped from a helicopter.

I spoke the church’s pastor this morning. He said the the Easter egg hunt will happen right after the congregation’s worship service Sunday. He hopes the event will bring the entire community together, giving the church an opportunity to reach people for Christ.

For those of you who are wondering, they’re plastic eggs with candy inside, not hard boiled.  No parachutes or cushions will be used. Eggs will simply be dropped from a helicopter onto the ground before the Easter egg hunt starts.

It should be interesting.

    At least it’s not turkeys being dropped at Thanksgiving… Anyone remember that WKRP episode?

    Dude, that episode of WKRP is a classic. I suppose the kids will be inside and not bombed by the eggs. Sounds kinda like a Stan Coffey “gimmick” from the 1970’s up in Amarillo.
