I am sorry for how long it has taken to get this latest post up. We left for Calgary immediately after the service in Moose Jaw and for Vancouver the next morning at a very, very early hour. We have been enjoying some vacation time here thanks to the wonderful hospitality of Heather’s brother Stephen and his wife Lindi and son Ben.
There were many preaching options from these texts but in the end I felt strongly that faith was the direction that was the correct one.
I have tried to avoid the almost inevitable reality of hobby horses in my preaching but I know that there are some things that I keep coming back to over and over again. One of these things is how we have some very significant misunderstandings about St. Peter and his reputation. I try to address some of these this week while spending much more time talking about faith and what it means.
