On Friday, April 7, Pastor Paul Nilsen presented one-man show outlining the story of Peter the disciple of Jesus at the Cornerstone Church in Grooville. This first person dramatic retelling told the story of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus through the eyes of the fisherman who became a “fisher of men”. Peter was often brash and headstrong and more than once challenged Jesus. He even denied his Savior while standing in courtyard where Jesus was being interrogated before his death. Pastor Paul conveyed all of the motions, doubts and fears of Peter as well as his final understanding of the Master’s purpose.
It was nice to see that the church was full with representatives from the Free Methodist churches in Grooville, Liberty Walton and Windsor. This was despite a sudden snowfall that left the ground white. A few “fish stories” preceded the main presentation. Music was provided by a duet of Mary and Sheri from the Grooville Church. Refreshments were provided after the presentation which allowed those who attended to have fellowship with each other.
