"Now Thomas (also known as Didymus), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. So the other disciples told him, "We have seen the Lord!" But he said to them, "Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe."
All my Christian life, I've heard him described as "Doubting Thomas". Not a very complimentary way to be remembered, really.
I'd rather not claim his title as MY epitaph, yet I couldn't help but smile as I read his words this morning.
Because I think our friend Didymus has been badly misunderstood.
Read the whole thing. It's not long, and I bet it'll add a new dimension to those dark nights of the soul.
