A22: The Second Sunday of Easter, Year A (2017)

MaryAnn McKibben Dana

MaryAnn McKibben Dana describes herself as “a writer, spouse, mother of three, muffin maker and occasional marathoner.” She says, “I am a Presbyterian pastor whose spiritual inner child is secretly Quaker. (I guess the secret’s out.) Dana says, “I believe in the expansive love of God that knows no bounds.” In this sermon from John 20:19-31 she wrestles with Thomas’s doubt and the love of God that seeks him out and finds him in an upper room. Perhaps “Doubting Thomas” deserve more credit and respect than we often give him.
