Welcome to Lugarno Peakhurst Uniting church online service on Sunday 18th of April 2021.  Today is the third Sunday after Easter and the Easter Story is continued in today’s gospel reading as the risen Christ appears to the disciples.  This is a great story with which to explore what Jesus was like after the resurrection.  His friends recognized him at least in this story they did.  But he was different.  He could appear inside a locked room.  But he wasn’t a ghost.  They could touch him.  He could eat a piece of fish.  His body was new and different.  But he was also the same old Jesus they had known.  It was and is very mysterious.  No one understands it fully.
