In our Sunday morning services at the moment, we’re looking at life through the lens of early Christians living in what is now called Turkey. In a world that felt alien, amongst people that they felt disconnected from, they needed help to know how to live their faith out. But Peter, the apostle, wanted more for them than just hanging in there. He wanted them to be communities that could share the good news they had received with others around them.
