Dear Friends of the Milton Lutheran Parish,
Happy Easter! I hope you are doing well. This week we hear another rendition of the story when Jesus appears to the disciples after he has been resurrected.
It never ceases to amaze me how even after spending all of the time that they did with Jesus, that the disciples still have doubts. If you’re anything like me you may at times feel envious of them. After all, they had the opportunity to see the real life Jesus in their midst and spent years with him. What a gift!
This text reminds me of an essential part of our faith, and that is doubt. We all have it. It ebbs and flows. Sometimes it consumes our thoughts, feelings, and actions. It is also completely natural. We as humans have doubts about all kinds of things, not just our belief in God.
In case you need to hear it this week, please know that it’s okay for us to doubt. Our world is filled with things that distract us from God. We are bombarded with mixed messages. Life can be hard at times and we struggle where God is in all of it. All of these things can lead us to question God presence in our lives and that’s okay. This week we are reminded in the midst of our doubts that God is constantly working to make Godself known. It may be through a relationship, maybe an experience we have, something on TV, a scripture passage we read. Whatever it may be please know that God is there especially in the midst of our doubts.
I’m excited to share with you an additional partnership opportunity that we have been offered as a parish. Starting in June the parish will be hosting the “Getting Ahead Foundation” at Trinity. This group works to improve the quality of life for low income individuals, families and their communities. You can read more about them on their website www.gettingaheadfoundation.org. In addition to hosting their program we will also partner with them by providing volunteers, meals, and support. There are brochures at Trinity that you can pick up if you are interested in volunteering to help. You can also talk to me about it if you have any questions.
