Wandering Heart… Songs of Loudest Praise

On Palm Sunday, after everything the disciples had been through, after everything Peter knew (and still didn’t know) about Jesus, what must he have felt as he watched Jesus and heard the hopeful songs of the crowd?

Wandering Heart…Teach Me

We are quickly approaching the events of Holy Week but make one last stop with Peter and Jesus as Peter asks a sincere question of his teacher…how many times do I forgive?

Wandering Heart…I’m Fixed Upon It

Today’s scripture passage opens our eyes to the fact that Peter, while he had the right words, didn’t entirely have the right understanding. He was “fixed” on the notion of a Messiah who would free them from Roman rule, but Jesus had other plans. Peter’s experience invites us to reflect on our experience. What happens to us in the face of tough times? How do we hold the reality of suffering, our own or others, alongside a belief in a loving God?

Wandering Heart…Praise the Mount

Today we consider Jesus question, “Who do you say that I am?” along with Simon’s response. This interaction invites us to reflect on our own faith journeys. When have we seen Jesus clearly and how do we speak with conviction about what we know? What we believe?
