SUNDAY READINGS (looking ahead)
April 12, 2015 - Second Sunday in Easter
Acts 4:32–35
Psalm 118
1 John 5:1–6
John 20:19–31
They were of one heart and mind.
“Give thanks to the Lord for he is good, his love is everlasting.”
Whoever is begotten by God conquers the world.
Eight days later Jesus came and stood in their midst.
Jesus presents us with another Beatitude today: “Blessed are those who have
not seen and have believed.” Yet Jesus also says, “As the Father has sent me, so
I send you.” Perhaps our task is to help others to both see and believe. As we
hear God’s holy word today, let us listen for those signs that help us to believe,
so that we might share them with others.
