What Now?

What do we do and where do we turn when life doesn’t go as expected? How do we deal with big disappointments? How do we wait well when answers don't come right away? How do we overcome discouragement and doubt? As we continue on in our "What Now?" series, we'll be looking at various stories involving the disciples, normal people just like us, and observe how they walked through the confusing & uncertain days following the death and resurrection of Jesus. This week we will look at Thomas - a man who both loved Jesus and doubted Jesus (Can anyone relate?). Let’s see what we can learn from both his response and Jesus' response.

From Series: "What Now?"

"Jesus was no longer in the tomb! He had been resurrected! And they all lived happily ever after." But wait....wasn't there a time between His resurrection and when Jesus actually appeared to the disciples again? Wasn't there a time of unsettling inactivity of Jesus' presence; a time of screaming silence; a time when perhaps the disciples wondered if the One they had believed in & followed had been the world's greatest con man? What if He didn't come through? What now?? What must Jesus' disciples have been thinking & feeling during those days: fear? confusion? disillusionment? impatience? grief? hope? Just as Jesus' very own disciples felt all of these things (and more!), so can we, thousands of years later, as we face various unsettling situations in our own lives. Thankfully, the Bible addresses each of these responses...and more! Come join us this Sunday for week #1 of our new sermon series, "What Now?" as we address various reactions to difficult times and what Scripture has to say about each one.
