A Word from the Pastor - April 8, 2021
April 8th, 2021
Christ is risen! He is risen indeed. Last Sunday we celebrated the resurrection, and the glorious Easter morning when the tomb was found empty. While Easter Sunday, resurrection Sunday, itself has come and gone, Easter, or Eastertide, is a season. A season that runs until Pentecost; spanning across 7 Sundays, we are called to celebrate the resurrection and the Risen Lord, each and every Sunday with the same jubilation as we did a few days ago.
Continuing our journey with Jesus, and his disciples, we will look at the story of Jesus appearing to his disciples, and how Thomas was left out at first and then touched the scars of the Risen Christ. Often called "Doubting Thomas" we will examine this unique and powerful interaction between the disciples, Thomas, and the scarred Jesus.
