A Conversation with Peter

Monday you read Matthew 9:35-38 and yesterday you read Acts 2:38-47. In Matthew Jesus is healing and tells his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” In Acts Peter, one of Jesus’ closest disciples, preaches and the message is met with an overwhelming response. The church community formed is intensely compassionate and deeply committed to mutual support. Can you imagine how Peter felt watching this new and remarkable work unfold before him?

Today we will practice a prayer called “colloquy.” Colloquy is an imaginative conversation with a person like a biblical figure. In colloquy you address this person directly and personally like you are talking to a close friend.

As you reflect on Peter being taught by Jesus then leading the early church, have a conversation with Peter. What would you like to know from him? About his experience? About his feelings?

Start by asking Peter a questions, then patently wait for a reply. Record your conversation in your journal like a play script.
