[Jesus] said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.” - John 20:27 (NIV)
My road to becoming a Christian was not easy. It was certainly not an experience such as Saul had on the road to Damascus (see Acts 9:3-8). I had no glorious epiphany. I was much like Thomas — a doubter.
I wanted to believe, so — my doubts not withstanding...
My doubts can lead me to deeper faith in God.

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
