  • Greeting the Easter sunrise

    Though the sunrise wasn’t evident on a gray, overcast Sunday, a crowd of about 50 attended the annual outdoor Sunrise Easter Service hosted by the Elizabethtown Ministerial Association at the Freeman Lake Bandstand.

    Rev. Coleman Howlett, secretary of the ministerial association, said the timing of the 7 a.m. sunrise service is significant. According to the gospels, the three women approached Jesus’ tomb at sunrise only to learn he had resurrected.

    “It’s a tradition,” Howlett explained.
