At Springfield’s Spring of Hope Church of God in Christ, it was no different.
Easter is the pinnacle of the Christian holidays that celebrates Jesus’ resurrection.
Reverend Talbert Swan says the day symbolizes more than the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
“People need to have hope that their situations can be resurrected. There are people who are going through a lot of things, financial difficulties, emotional turmoil, and different difficulties in life. And the message is that their situations too can be resurrected in life.”
Rev. Swan says hundreds of people turned out to celebrate at Spring of Hope.
