Reflection: As I read my Bible I am always thankful for the believers who have come before me and have written down stories and lessons. I find strength in what they have to share. I wonder if I had been around when they were alive if I would have believed. We have the benefit of history and I am grateful. Another thing I am grateful for is forgiveness. In these Acts text Peter was so great at letting others know of this forgiveness. As we look to Easter I hope we are as good at sharing the Good News as those who have come before. --Charlene Rineer
