A Sermon about the twin.   MaryAnn McKibben Dana describes herself as “a writer, spouse, mother of three, muffin maker and occasional marathoner.” She says, “I am a Presbyterian pastor whose spiritual inner child is secretly Quaker. (I guess the secret’s out.) I believe in the expansive love of God that knows no bounds.” In this sermon from John 20:19-31 she wrestles with Thomas’s doubt, and the love of God that seeks him out and finds him in an upper room.
