Easter 6a - conclusion

Our son Joshua graduates from Birdville High School on Sunday. He has two tests today and then he’s done and I’m not sure how it happened. Not that he graduated. He’s a smarty boy. It just seems he’s grown up all of a sudden. But that’s the way it is with life changes. You think you have all the time in the world but the clock’s been ticking and even when you know it’s coming when the alarm goes off it’s always a surprise. Paul surprises the folks in Athens by naming the unknown God and even if most of them hit the snooze at least two woke up to the new reality that in Jesus God has been made known. The psalmist is rejoicing that the time of testing is over and invites everyone to the “let me tell you what God has done for me” party.  Peter’s people, schooled in the resurrection, are to always be ready to give a reason for the hope they have but in such a way that others might actually hear what they have to say. And in the Gospel Jesus lets the disciples in on what’s coming next so that they will know the truth when they see it.
