And That is Good News Indeed

Announced by his Word and sealed in his table fellowship “in the  midst of us,” this Good News, “Peace be with you!” wells up within us as a message to be proclaimed to others. “Gathered together in one place,” – we are on this side of Pentecost – are also scattered after the benediction out into the world as his witnesses to all that has been done.  “The Lord is risen!” “He is risen indeed!”  We are his people and he is our place, and that is Good News indeed.
