How awesome is Peter? I have this huge poster of an early icon of Peter in my office (pictured to the right). I love Peter because within about eleven verses (Matthew 16:18 to 17:2) he is called the rock on which Jesus will build his church, he is called “Satan” by Jesus (“Get behind me, Satan!” 16:23), and he witnesses the Transfiguration of Jesus on top of a mountain.
Prayer - Brightest and best of the stars of the morning, help us remember that Jesus is the light in the darkness. Brightest and best of the stars of the morning, keep our eyes focused on each new day. Brightest and best of the stars of the morning, lead us out into the world.
Each week we feature a way for your family to reflect and pray together. For families with older children this is an at home liturgy for your family to participate in together. It is a daily devotion for families adapted from The Book of Common Prayer.
This week hosts David Tremaine, Maya Little-Sana and The. Rev. Jackie Pippin explore the themes of healing, work and rest and reflect on the resources provided for the different age groups on the Faith To Go webpage.
