During Lent, fish fry events spring up like weeds after a drought. Certainly this is advantageous for the church coffers and convenient for those abstaining from meat. But from a scriptural point of view, why stop eating fish after Easter? Didn’t Jesus prepare a breakfast of fish after he rose from the dead? Weren’t fish part of the resurrection feast? And didn’t Peter even stop to count the fish? 153 in one net nearly breaking! (John 21:1-14)  And didn’t eating a piece of broiled fish prove that it was really Jesus risen from the dead? (Luke 24:36-43) So if you’re a scriptural gourmet, keep the fish fry going throughout the Easter season.
