If ever there was a model for living in this fast paced world it has to be the life of St. Peter. If Jesus can transform this impulsive, conflicted, vacillating man into the greatest of our saints then surely there is hope for you and me. We identify with Peter when he stumbles, falters, and makes a mistake. We marvel as he grows, develops, matures and changes right before our eyes. Out of his very human nature a far deeper spiritual nature is revealed and Peter is given a vision to live like never before.
What then is Peter's vision? It is a vision-a life plan-that encourages us to become participants in the divine nature of Jesus Christ. Participation means that we are active, involved, exercising, changing and growing through every day, ordinary activity. What makes this activity extraordinary is the grace and knowledge of our participation in the divine nature.
The Reverend Robert T. Jennings takes us through this spiritual journey and shows us how St. Peter uniquely speaks to us today and through his vision we see our life in Christ and grow into a new and more fulfilling life.
