Many generations and countless witnesses later, we feel a little smug when we hear Jesus say,"Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe." (John 20:29) And yet we often find ourselves fearful and doubting, locked in and locking out. We miss seeing Jesus in the needs of our neighbors.
The good news is that Jesus comes to us and stands in our midst. In our fear and in our doubt the risen Christ blesses us with peace, invites us to faithful community and filling meal, equips and sends us. We are blessed to see the Lord and believe. Alleluia!
All are welcome to join us to worship the Risen Lord on Sunday mornings at 8:30 a.m. at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Runge.
