Call to Worship:

Sometimes believing, sometimes doubting

we gather together as friends of Jesus.

 

Sometimes weeping, sometimes laughing

we gather together as friends of Jesus.

 

Sometimes afraid, sometimes joyful

we gather together as friends of Jesus.

 

Whatever our journey has been here we are welcome as we

gather together as friends of Jesus.

 

Exercises and Questions to help you put into practice today’s story……

 

Was there something in today’s story that challenged, encouraged, warmed, or surprised you?  Ponder this…. Talk about it with someone who also heard the story.

 

How do you respond to the idea that the community of the risen Christ is for scarred and scared people? 

 

Draw close to Thomas.  You can read about him in John 11:16, 14:5, 20:24, 21:2.  He has been given the name doubting Thomas.  I think he has been wrongly vilified and call him courageous.  Do you think it is wrong to question?   How do you sense Jesus responded to him?

 

We often hide our faith behind ‘locked doors’.  See if sometime this week you can unlock the door and talk openly with another about your faith and ‘new life’ you have found in Jesus.  Don’t be afraid to admit you have questions and you haven’t got all the answers….
