Shortly after his resurrection, Jesus appeared to his followers in various settings. One of the disciples, Thomas, just happened to be absent during that first appearance. He struggled to believe when the others told him that Jesus was alive. But instead of shaming Thomas on account of his doubt, the other disciples created space for Thomas and his doubts until Jesus could satisfy Thomas’ uncertainty himself.
What a beautiful example of what a worshipping community ought to be! We are all at different parts of our faith journey. May we create space for everyone regardless of their belief knowing that God will meet us exactly as we most need.
