(Top) St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church, rural Akron, was decked out for Easter with a replica of the tomb where Jesus was laid following the crucifixion and from which he arose. By the tomb display are: Haley Gabel and her children, Rahlyn, Ellyson and Brystol. (Below) — During her children’s sermon, the Rev. Lil Johnston talked about the cocoon and butterfly, and that just like the cocoon cannot hold onto the butterfly, so death and the tomb could not keep Jesus.
