Centering Words for Sunday, April 15: Sin or righteousness? Doubt or belief? These are questions raised by today’s texts. Are we afraid when Jesus appears unexpectedly in our lives? How strong are our beliefs and desire to follow? Are we strong enough not to sin? Isn’t that impossible? No, for that is the promise we hear today in the Easter readings. The result of believing is understanding and the declaration: I called and God answered. Jesus is the one who fulfills the promises. Where do we find ourselves? Where do we find peace? These questions help us find our way.
