As our gospel brings Thomas and his doubts to the fore today, we are reminded that the Spirit of the Risen Lord is asking us if we, too, believe.
Today as we celebrate our Risen Savior, as well as the gift of baptism, we remember both our lessons and our baptismal vows exhort us spread this good news in word and deed!
On this solemn evening when we recall our Lord’s Passion, my buddy Rev. Arnie McFarland helped us appreciate what happens when world is without the Light of the World.
On this eve celebrating our Savior’s institution of the Eucharist, I had the honor to preach at my friend’s church, Pr. Arnie McFarland of Calvary Methodist, as our congregations worshipped together.
Decided to preach on Paul’s admonition to Timothy to “fight the good fight of the faith” as we ramp up Holy Week.
Our lessons today give us practical insight into how we can prepare and engage in the new things God does, admonishing us to to look ahead.
May light perpetual shine upon her.
This Laetare Sunday we are reminded of the grace upon which we can always rely in our lessons.
