Tuesday, April 18. Read “We Can Count On It!” (p. 29). How is death a threshold into a new life? How can the awareness of death help us value life now and embrace the promise of eternal life?
Words from the Word: Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By his great mercy he has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who are being protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
– 1 Peter 1:3-5, NRSV
Audio Lectio: Pray the scripture using audio lectio from John 20:19-31
Spiritual Tools: Engage in this weeks spiritual practice, The Season of Easter.
