Scripture for April 7; guest preachers Stephanie Price and Patrick Heery

John 20:24–29
But Thomas (who was called the Twin), one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came.

So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands, and put my finger in the mark of the nails and my hand in his side, I will not believe.”

A week later his disciples were again in the house, and Thomas was with them. Although the doors were shut, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.” Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it in my side. Do not doubt but believe.” Thomas answered him, “My Lord and my God!” Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe.”

    I apologize for the misspellings. I forgot to spell check.

    This text for me raises up the difficulty of learning what is really happening in our society and I the world today. Reporters and news media, not to mention orporations’ media arms, report events from their own particular biases. If we trust r own moral compasses to sort through this hodge pod of information, we can still be misled, because advertisers of the “shave the truth” kind are being employed by businessmen and politicians with hidden agendas. The tension in this story is very real for us today, I.e how to detainee what is true. I think we face greater difficulties in this regard than did the people of Jesus’ time, because our society and technologies have become s much more complex.
