Truth in Disbelieving Times (or, Thomas in the days of “Fake News”)

This story is a miracle. Thomas, like so many before him, is healed by Christ's touch. Healed of his grief, of his disbelief. Easter tells us there are Truths which are universal. There are Truths which outlast even the worst news. There is Truth worth believing.

Easter is More than Survival

At Easter, we don't proclaim that Jesus survived. The distinction is important. Because every time we proclaim Alleluia Christ is Risen!, we defiantly announce a joyful and frightening message. God has undone the sinful powers that estrange us from one another. God has come back to untie us from our death-dealing ways.
