While we don’t know much about the Saturday of Easter, we do know that Christ was dead and that the disciples basically tucked tail and ran. One reason may be that they were separated (as Peter was) from each other. Take the opportunity this week to look out for those who may have loner tendencies. Find a way to draw them in to community through a beer, lunch, inviting them to bring their kids over to play, or tagging along to an event where you know they’ll be.  Take special care to look out for those being tested, and to realize where you need help as well.

Luke 22:54 Then they seized him and led him away, bringing him into the high priest’s house, and Peter was following at a distance. 55 And when they had kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard and sat down together, Peter sat down among them.56 Then a servant girl, seeing him as he sat in the light and looking closely at him, said, “This man also was with him.” 57 But he denied it, saying, “Woman, I do not know him.” 58 And a little later someone else saw him and said, “You also are one of them.” But Peter said, “Man, I am not.” 59 And after an interval of about an hour still another insisted, saying, “Certainly this man also was with him, for he too is a Galilean.” 60 But Peter said, “Man, I do not know what you are talking about.” And immediately, while he was still speaking, the rooster crowed. 61 And the Lord turned and looked at Peter. And Peter remembered the saying of the Lord, how he had said to him, “Before the rooster crows today, you will deny me three times.”62 And he went out and wept bitterly.

Always great to have out of towners (Skipper and Little Buddy). Prayers for men with difficult family situations during the holiday weekend, Jasmine’s achilles tendon, and other surgeries coming up.
BIG KING OF THE BLUFF bet with Gus coming up Monday. EH the fool out of that neighbor, coworker, friend.
