Peter’s letters to the disciples were filled with words of tenderness and love. He writes, “Beloved, tend the flock of God in your midst.”
The love among the early Christians was fierce and fearless. Their courage and care for one another propelled them to face unthinkable suffering.
Lord God, we have so much to learn from those who have gone before us, shouldering their crosses by your side. Give us their clarity of vision and largeness of heart.
