CHAPTER ONE! The Hare Hairy
“Truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”
- Matthew 18:19-20
Did you know the Easter Bunny is Lutheran?
Way back when, over three hundred years ago, a community very much like ours decided they needed a new way to show Christ’s love to their daughters and sons. That’s when Georg (the local rabbit farmer) introduced the churchgoers to Hairy, his prized hare.
Hairy the hare was six feet tall from bunny ear to bunny foot. He was all white with a great big bunny tail and long white bunny whiskers. “Everyone loves bunnies!” Georg explained. “And for as long as any of us can remember, bunnies have symbolized new life! Isn’t that what Easter’s about?”
