Words cannot express what our first Sunday back in person was like! My adrenaline was flowing just seeing everyone’s faces again, and upon reflection it just reiterated to me the power of the cross, that we are better together. As you look at the cross, you see both the vertical and the horizontal beams. The vertical representing our walk with Jesus, and the horizontal, our walk with each other. We are not complete without both intersecting right in the middle. In Matthew 14 we see this powerfully on display. But often we so focus (and rightly so) on the miracle of Peter walking on water, that we miss out on what it must have been like to be part of the team of the disciples and how they got through this together. We are truly better together! So the question is, who is in your boat? Stay tuned.
