Devouting Thomas
2010-04-09 by David von Schlichten

In John 11, when Jesus says that they should all travel to the Bethany area so Jesus can raise Lazarus from the dead, Thomas does not understand Jesus. Thomas thinks Jesus is heading to his own death - of course, in a way, Jesus is doing just that. In any case, Thomas then declares, "Let us also go, that we may die with him." In other words, Thomas expresses a willingness to die with Jesus. In John 11, at least, Thomas is devout, not full of doubt.

Yours in Christ,

Resurrection Sunday and MLK
2010-04-03 by David von Schlichten

Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated on April 4. I will incorporate the remembrance of this event into my Resurrection Day sermon.

On Good Friday I spoke about the hymn "Were You There?" and slavery, proclaiming that, through his suffering on the cross, Christ identifies with the suffering of all the oppressed.

Tomorrow I will proclaim that, through Christ, God liberates us all from slavery, grants us the ultimate freedom, to which we are to respond by serving all.

Yours in the Triduum,

Things we need to believe to see
2010-04-01 by Bill Hayes

I was driving down Irby Street in my current hometown of Florence, SC, this afternoon when I noticed the sign at "Jumping J's" -- a local seafood restaurant.  The sign read:

 "Some things have to be believed to be seen"

Hmm .. That'll certainly preach ... and maybe give a new angle to the Thomas story next week, or at least one that members of my congregation will relate to because many of them will have seen the sign by next Sunday! 

   

 

 





The Passion and Death as April Fool's Joke
2010-03-31 by David von Schlichten

God outwits Satan with what looks like defeat and death but which is really victory and life.
