Peter & Paul
Today is the feast day of Peter and Paul.
Why tie two such strong men together in one day? Is there room enough for two? These strong men, pillars, founders of the early church, at time in conflict, at time at odds as strong men inevitably are, it’s to be expected that they would clash. It would take an even stronger man to lead them, teach them to work together, it would take Jesus.
And so they were able to work together despite differences for the greater good. They provide for us an example how truly great men can work together and achieve even greater feats together than they could alone.
Now I want you to know, brothers, that the gospel preached by me is not of human origin. For I did not receive it from a human being, nor was I taught it, but it came through a revelation from Jesus Christ. Galatians 1:11-12
