This morning in worship we heard the Gospel story from John 20, where, due to an appearance by Jesus, the disciples’ fear and foreboding were replaced with peace and a living hope, culminating in Thomas’ strong statement of faith: “My Lord and my God!”

Then, we heard the writer of 1 Peter proclaim that resurrection ushers in hope. I took a key phrase from that text, “By God’s great mercy he has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,” and I sent it out to eight persons, asking each one to look at their own lives and circumstances right now, or look at the world around them, and tell us where they see signs of living hope and resurrection.” These are the responses I got.
