A21: The Second Sunday of Easter, Year A (2020)

MaryAnn McKibben Dana

“Poor Thomas. He’s been called the doubter, the skeptic. Jesus seems to chastise him for having to see in order to believe,” begins MaryAnn McKibben Dana. In John 20:19-31, we learn how Jesus handles a “skeptic” in the ranks. Dana says, “The word for faith and the word for doubt comes from the same Greek root. It’s as if they are two sides of the same coin. It’s as if you can’t have one without the other.” Listen as Dana explores the concept of  doubt and how “normal” it is to be like Thomas.
