To Bring Us Peace

with Caroline Wilson

Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection gave us hope and peace! “…we have all had the same heart as Peter. We have denied Jesus in our thoughts, words, and deeds. We have not proclaimed to know the truth or reflected that we are people who live in the light. But praise God the end of the story is not our sinfulness or a dark Friday. Sunday came and will keep coming.” Read Caroline’s reflection on her time in Israel!
