Hope in a locked room

Bobbie Frere | John 20:19-29 

On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, 'Peace be with you!' After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord.

In lockdown for fear of the dangers outside, and with no idea how it will all end. Does that sound familiar? Into this apparently hopeless situation, Jesus turns up and suddenly everything looks different. Bobbie explains how the presence of Jesus can change us and give us hope today.

This is a shortened form of our Sunday morning reflection, introduced by Susan Haynes with prayers from Adrian Jones. The full video version can be viewed on YouTube.
