Worshipping and doubting — Easter Sunday sermon 2018

The scripture witnesses to Jesus’ resurrection by including all its conflicts, tensions and ambivalence without any explanation or apology. It just preaches what happened and reports the responses — nothing tidy or flattering. The most consistent response is ambivalence, summed up in the words “worshipping and doubting.” We want to keep the worship part is get rid of the doubt part, following Jesus’ words to Thomas, “Do not doubt, but believe.” We want to say along with Thomas, “My Lord and my God.” John 20:27-28
