Josh opens our study of 1 Peter following our journey through the Gospel of Mark. There, we saw Peter called by Jesus to ministry, and we witnessed Peter bungle his way through many times as he grew in faith. In 1 Peter, we have a book written to encourage a community facing persecution for their faith and hear the fatherly, pastoral heart that Peter has for these people. The worship journey for this week: "Chosen by God invited into living hope." 1 Peter 1:1-12; Revelation 7:9; Deuteronomy 7:6.
