Scripture: John 20:19-31
The disciples find themselves locked in an upper room in fear and uncertainty. One of them, Thomas, longs to touch the risen Jesus, facing the reality of the pain of what has been. On the other side of the touch comes a great unlocking, sending the disciples and Jesus’s ministry into the world again. Where are the wounded places in our world that need us to touch, to grieve, and face them more directly that we may be “unlocked” to greater love and service?
