Pew Leaflet Sunday 8 April 2018

REFLECTION FOR THE WEEK:

Thomas misses the first resurrection appearance, and when the other disciples tell him about it, he refuses to accept a second-hand faith. He wants his faith to be real and personal. It is only when he has his own encounter with Christ, when his faith is his own, that he is able to give himself fully to the Risen One, but give himself he does. His words, “My Lord and my God” are a radical statement of worship and commitment. It is easy to settle for a second-hand faith. It is far simpler if we ignore our questions and just accept the faith that we are taught by teachers, preachers and friends. But, real faith is always first-hand. This week, don’t settle for a “hand-me-down” faith. Be part of a faith community, and allow others to support your faith, but stay committed to finding your own, personal encounter with the Risen Christ. Only a first-hand faith can really sustain and transform us. (Sacredise Daily Worship)
