When Peter and Paul met at Antioch, the sparks flew
The interplay between Cornelius and Peter in Acts 10-11 contains some of my favorite moments in scripture.
Saint Peter and Saint Paul, Apostles, were martyred in Rome in 64 CE. The Episcopal Church celebrates their sacrifice with a feast day on June 29
To remember Cornelius is to celebrate courage persevering through prejudice and how God’s love can overcome our blindness.
The people send for Peter, because Peter is friends with Jesus. We all do this, right? When I have a cold, I may text my friend with something like, “I feel miserable, say a little prayer for me,” but when I am having surgery, I want the priest there anointing!
Black Lives Matter. Saint Peter and Saint Paul disagreed on much, but this, this, they agreed on: black lives matter. Let’s circle back here in a moment.
I will always remember the first time I met my husband’s brother.
“Mama, will your bottom just keep getting bigger and bigger until the baby gets here?”
This morning in devotions, I saw myself in Peter. I didn’t reflect Pentecost evangelical Peter or stepping out of the boat Peter, but anxiety ridden at the cross Peter. Peter, how I wish I related to one of your more shining moments.
Today is not only the Feast of the Confession of Saint Peter, but also the first day of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. This week falls each January between two holy days: The Confession of Saint Peter and the Conversion of Saint Paul.
