This week we start a new 10 week (yes, 10 week!) series on Peter. He was just an ordinary man who lived what was in most ways an ordinary life, a big-hearted fisherman who Jesus loved. Our aim in this series is not just to learn about Peter himself but to learn more about Jesus as we see him through Peter’s eyes.
One of Peter’s defining moments was when he walked on water with Jesus. Today we read that story in Matthew 14 carefully, verse by verse, to learn what enabled Peter to look past his fear and take that step. During this time of global pandemic and turmoil, can we learn to trust Jesus in the same way?
