God has room for all … and Jesus is the Way to God

Morning: Psalms 146, 147; Exodus 14:5-22; I John 1:1-7

Last Saturday, my daughter read this Gospel at her grandfather’s funeral. She says it reminds her of our very large church rectory, where there is room for everyone. Jesus reassures his disciples that, in the unknown and indescribable future, there will be room for all.  And, in response to Thomas’s questioning, he says that he, Jesus, is the Way to God.  That is, look at Jesus – listening compassionately to ordinary folk; weeping at the tomb of his friend; serving his followers by washing their feet; or, loving and forgiving those who killed him – look at Jesus, and you’ll see God.
