Saw this on Maggi Dawn’s blog and wanted to make a note of it.
I preached on this a while back, and it also links with fond memories of a local clergyman who died last year, for whom Thomas was very important (partly because he was ordained NSM on St Thomas’s Day I believe). Thomas is in fact the first to proclaim “My Lord and my God” I seem to remember – and in doing so, made a very important connection!
Will try to dig out my old sermon and attach it… tomorrow!
