MARSING, Idaho — The coronavirus pandemic canceled one of the longest traditions on Easter: the Lizard Butte Easter sunrise service.

This service has been going on for more than 80 years, and even though they did a Facebook live reading at 7:00 a.m., it just wasn't the same.

Since Easter sermons occurred online, we wanted to share last year's service, in hopes of bringing a little joy to people who are at home during the stay-at-home order.
