Second Sunday of Easter
Acts 2:14a, 22-32
I Peter 1:3-9
THE GOSPEL READING:
Question for Reflection:
According to the gospel, Christ's wounds were not erased by the resurrection. In fact, he invited Thomas and the other disciples to touch his wounds to bring the disciples back to faith. How might we in the church use our wounds to help others come to faith?
Holy One, you have made known to me the ways of life and have promised to fill me with the gladness of your presence. Keep me mindful of your guidance and your promise as I travel through this day, that my heart may be glad. Amen.
Thank you, Lord, for giving me your counsel today. Tonight, as I sleep, may the dreams of my heart also serve to instruct me in your ways. In you I have a good heritage, and my heart, my soul, and my body rest in you. Amen.
