Message for April 16: Blessed Are They Who Did Not See, And Yet Believed

Blessings to you, family and friends of BBT.  I hope you’ll join us for our Resurrection Day celebration this Sunday.  Here’s your weekly update.

We had a great crowd last Sunday.  It was good to have so many back with us.  We appreciated having Edith back to play for us.  Recordings just aren’t the same.  Linda taught us the value of devotional by example and Pastor David gave a great message on how we should pray.  Check out the podcast if you were not able to be there.

Is there a person in the Bible that you especially identify with?  Maybe you feel you understand something of where they were coming from.  Maybe you are encouraged by seeing how God used them despite their flaws.  I’m encouraged by many of them for different reasons, but one of my favorites is Thomas.  Yes, “doubting Thomas.”  We’re not told a lot about him, but I think if I lived back then, that would be me.  So I studied with interest the exchange between Jesus and Thomas after His resurrection, recounted in John 20:24-29.  What I found was a blessing for all of us who believe in Jesus today.  I look forward to sharing it with you this Sunday.

We’ll be having a dinner after the service.  I know there will be plenty of everything, but I know for sure there will be more than enough dessert.  Come celebrate with us!
