Gifts of Interruption

Apr 14, 2024 | Easter, Liz Colver, Narrative Lectionary - Year 3, Sermons

The crippled man and the disciples both experience surprise and interruption in the norms of what they think might happen for them this day.  The man expected the same – people offering him coins or ignoring him.  It has been the same day in and day out for years.  Peter and John expected to continue in their grieving and confusion at the loss of their mentor and friend Jesus, and planned to go to the temple for a routine prayer service.  Neither expectation happens, and they – and we! – are all better for it.  What might it take for us to open our senses differently to the wonder of welcoming interruption and – perhaps – finding a miracle of healing within ourselves or those around us?!
