April 23, 2017 - Don't be a Doubting Thomas?

Marsha takes us through the story of Thomas, the only apostle who hadn't seen Jesus when he first appeared after the resurrection. Some say that Thomas went off into seclusion, totally devastated and not wanting to be part of the group any longer.

When he hears that some claim to have seen Jesus, he returns, but Thomas has the nerve to ask for proof. He needs solid evidence before he will believe this story. At their first encounter, Jesus completely understands, and urges Thomas to touch the wounds, to imagine the pain, to do whatever it takes to convince himself.

Thomas examines the evidence, looks up into Jesus' face, and proclaims with joy and humble love: "My Lord and my God!"
