In the wilderness

We all have times of wilderness, where we set out on a journey that we have little say over and find ourselves in a place where life just challenges us to the core. Essentially this is not a bad experience although du8ring it, it might feel bad, becaus...

The Gospel story today is a turning point in Matthews story.

It begins with a reference to last week where Peter declared Jesus as the Messiah, the Son of the Living God.
