Doubting Thomas, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Teddy Kennedy – and Judgement

A sermon delivered on April 8, 2018 (Easter II) at St. John’s Episcopal Church, Charleston, West Virginia.

I have long thought that “Doubting” Thomas gets a bad rap. This sermon discusses that kind of judgement, done so easily by people, and relates it to Dr. King and Senator Kennedy.  The last statement in the sermon (“Life is short. Be kind.”) relates to a blessing posted elsewhere on this site and which is well known to the congregation at St. John’s.
