About E.B. Meets The Lamb

     A few years ago, my pastor challenged me to write a children’s Easter story that he wanted me to read during our Easter service. I’ll never forget that he proposed this idea to me on the Thursday afternoon before Easter Sunday. I tried to explain to him why I couldn’t do it, but then he made it into a challenge. I’ve always enjoyed a challenge, so I finally agreed to try.
I wrote this story after noticing all the chocolate Easter Bunnies, candy eggs and Easter Bunny commercials that were being advertised. I noticed that the TRUE meaning of Easter was never mentioned.
     I remember thinking to myself, “Where’s the Lord?”
     I wrote this story for children to remind them of the REAL meaning of the season. I want them to know that there’s nothing wrong with E.B. -- as long as we don't exclude The Lamb.

     I prayed about it that night and the next evening I began to write. I called Pastor Hobson on Saturday afternoon and told him that I was ready. The next day, on Easter Sunday we called all the children to come down to the front of the sanctuary and I read “E.B. Meets The Lamb.” I was surprised at how well they understood and enjoyed it. I’ve always said that “I’m not smart enough to have written these stories by myself. I’m blessed to be God’s pen.”
            I hope that you and your loved ones enjoy this story too.

                               Love & Peace,
                               Brother Charles
