Host: George Borghardt Many people misinterpret the Gospel reading we talked about yesterday. They make it all about Peter’s faith and turn that into saying you should have faith like Peter. But Peter didn’t have faith that the next net cast would wield any fish at all.

Your first calling in life was to be a fish, before anything else you were a fish, caught by Christ in the...  Read More
