A sermon for the Second Sunday of Easter
by congregation member Daniel Sack
1 Peter 1:3-9; John 20:19-31
It had been a weird week for the disciples. Strike that–it had been a weird three years for the disciples. They were, the gospels suggest, regular guys. None of them were priests or teachers. Most were fishermen and farmers. And they were not, the gospels make clear, particularly smart. The scriptures note how often they miss the point when Jesus is talking.
