“But This Happened….”

In 2 Corinthians 1:8-11, the Apostle Paul reflects on ‘the hardships‘ he suffered during a stage of his life.  He writes – “We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired even of life.  Indeed, in our hearts we felt the sentence of death.  But this happened that we […]

Believing is Seeing

“Seeing is believing,” is a quote used in various contexts.   In John’s gospel, Thomas (called Didymus – or Twin), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came.  It certainly doesn’t pay to miss meetings does it?  The other disciples updated this “absentee” with the good news, “We have seen the […]
