Jesus meets Peter again

Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.

I wonder if there is space in heaven for books of all of these extraordinary ‘other things’, certainly on an e-reader I guess and we’ll have time to sit and peruse them.

The events John recorded here might not be one of the most extraordinary but it is beautifully poignant. Peter rejected all relationship even all knowledge of Jesus and yet Jesus takes great care to forgive him for each of those things, without any need to make it up to him. Not only that he trusts the forgiven Peter with the care of his church – a great responsibility for someone who was such a massive failure. And his story is my story – one ransomed, healed, restored and forgiven. Get games, songs, drama, teaching and more here.

  1. Thank you very much, Hannah – perfect timing, as we are planning the theme of our next Connect to be about Peter.

    In the Fishes in the sea game, we didn’t have the stormy sea command, so that will be interesting to try, and we did have “Shark’s coming” at which point, all runners lie on their backs and wave arms and legs in the air (or just arms if wearing skirts) until leader says “shark’s gone” at which they continue round to their chair.

    Thank you for all the ideas – I like the application and the activities greatly inspiring for our planning.

    God bless you.

    Joy
