Doubting Versus Asking
The reading today was the story of Jesus' appearance to the disciples except Thomas, and his subsequent appearance to Thomas. Thomas needed convincing, although to be fair to Thomas, no more evidence than the other already had. He said, "Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe it." Full Story Here.
Chalice Christian identifies itself as a place where questions mean as much as answers. Like Thomas, we haven't given up on Jesus, but like Thomas we need convincing. Perhaps we should name Thomas as our Patron Saint.
