A Community of Open Doors!

He Is Risen!  Alleluia!  read more here!

Doubting Thomas Sunday With Special Musical Guest, John Urban

The Easter season is a week of weeks; seven Sundays when we play in the mystery of Christ's presence, mostly through the glorious Gospel of John. Today we gather with the disciples on the first Easter, and Jesus breathes the Spirit on us. With Thomas we ask for a sign, and Jesus offers us his wounded self in the broken bread. From frightened individuals we are transformed into a community of open doors, peace, forgiveness, and material sharing such that no one among us is in need.

Readings: Acts 4:32-35, Psalm 1331 John 1:1--2:2John 20:19-31
