Sermon Theme: The Smoking Gun Sacred Story: John 20:19-31
Human Need: In a world built on the Scientific Method we all want proof, like Thomas.
Overview: Thomas wanted “the smoking gun,” or the definitive empirical evidence that the one standing before him was the victim of the crime, the crucified and resurrected Jesus. Rather than criticizing Thomas, Jesus gives him what he desires.
Community Challenge: To share Thomas’ experience as one who receives the gift of faith—not something we decide so much as something with which we are blessed.
