John 20:21 Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.”

We’ve been asked to stay put lately and with good reason. The disciples were staying put, hiding out for fear in a locked room. They had good reasons too. Things had spun out of control, their leader had been publicly executed, and now wild stories had started about him being risen from the dead. It’s enough to make you want to go to bed and pull the covers over your head. But the time will come for them to go out and tell the story. When this Covid-19 situation finally eases will we have a sense of being sent out again to share the little stories of how God sustained us and the big story of how God revives all of life through the resurrection of Jesus. Was it just the first disciples that were sent? How might Jesus be sending you?
