May 2, 2021 | The Very Rev. Paul Donison

    When we err as disciples, Jesus calls us back. Fr. Paul examines Christ's confrontation of Peter on the shore of Tiberius and reveals hope for those who come face to face with their failures. We have been made children of God. Nothing can rewrite our status if we are born again in Christ.
