Conference Topic:

Brave Enough to Follow

The Life of Simon Peter

The failures of Simon Peter are well known to men who read the Bible and some find comfort in it seeing something of their own short comings in the great Apostle’s life. But we miss the point of his story if we do not see what he did right! And that was – he was told to “keep on following” and this he did to his dying day.
