Who enjoys cracking open an Easter egg?

This spoken word starts by exploring the chocolate-shelled variety, but goes on to unpack some of the rich symbolism often associated with the egg.

The poem stirs up big questions about life, death and whether there is more to us than the ‘shell we leave behind’, and then reveals the powerful Easter story:

“So, consider the egg: this Easter confection Speaks hope, offers life, proclaims resurrection.”

Possible Discussion Questions

  • What do you think happens when we die?
  • If death could not bind Jesus – and he had the power to smash his way through it, what does that mean for us?
