This Isn’t An Easter Egg Hunt — It’s A Copter Drop!

WOODBURY, Minn. (WCCO) — A beautiful day for Easter Sunday meant perfect conditions for an Easter egg hunt. But this wasn’t really a hunt but eggs dropping from above.

Kings Quest Church in Woodbury brought in a helicopter and photojournalist Tony Peterson was there to see the eggs drop.

    Well this should tell you that religion isn’t broke when they can afford a helicopter to fly around and waste time and gas. Geez when are religions going to stop getting tax breaks and start paying in taxes like the rest of us?????

      Is it your gas? Is it your time? Get a life.

        , Tonight is the night you Join me in the middle of eatscsy, Feel the melody in the rhythm of the Music around you, around you Ima take you there, Ima take you there . No, clearly the first verse is a song of seduction. Seems to be the classic, sexist vision of sexual conquest. To wit, the first verse ends with So don’t be scared, im right here baby We can go anywhere, go anywhere But first its yo chance, Take my hand come with me. The vision of Christian marriage is a forever-commitment. But Forever says, We’ve only got one night. Clearly, as in the vast majority of pop, R B, and hip-hop music, the man is in control and the woman expected to follow. As the song says, Just need you to trust me. I don’t know how you parse the lyrics any other way. The song isn’t about marriage, or about God, or about a lifelong commitment.

    Just because they are religious doesn’t mean they are poor and don’t pay taxes. Also doesn’t mean it was tax exempt…

      It’s a church….pretty sure the church doesn’t pay taxes…Not sure why WCCO would send a ‘photjournalist’ to cover it….although it does kind of remind me the Thanksgiving WKRP episode, maybe they were there hoping the kids would get maimed by falling plastic eggs..

    Nieve people shouldn’t post comments.

    for all we know someone who attends the church donated their time and helicopter for a special purpose for the day.

    Way to go Kings Quest! What a great way to give back to your community.

    I personally am a friend of the pastor of that church, Reverend Drew Baldridge, and have known him for every bit of 19 years. Another gentleman that was present was Jeff Cates, also my long time Bible College friend, and brother in Christ; great people in a great church. Any complaints about how they witness to a community can be taken to God and asked why it was allowed to happen. I’m sure God has the absolute answer for the complainers.
