In our epistle lesson today, St. Peter tells us we have a living hope. But what does that mean and how are we to live out that hope? Is it just pie-in-the-sky wishful thinking? Hardly! Our living hope is the risen and living Lord with whom we are united in baptism. Check out what Father Maney has to say about it all and resolve to live your life for Christ in the power of the Spirit. It's not always easy or straightforward, but it is the only Way to real life. Lectionary texts for today are Acts 2.14a, 22-32; Psalm 16; 1 Peter 1.3-9; John 20.19-31.
